I am working on a Farmall Super A rear wheels, whereby the rims bolt (4) to the dish. 2 1/2 x 5/8 square head nuts or bolts are needed to fit into the cradle on the wheel. I cannot find them. Any suggestions? A hex head nut or bolt will not work properly. Thanks!

I got the bolts I needed at Fastenal. 4 bolts with the shipping cost me $14.00. I then went to Lowes and bought the 5/8 nuts and washes for 0.17 cents a piece. Thanks again everybody for your replies.

Mkirsch, I agree. Companies mark up the actual shipping to "make ends meet". funny part is, all 4 bolts and nuts will fit into a $5.95 flat rate USPS Priority mail small box.

go figure.

My local Ace Hardware carries square nuts and square-headed bolts. I'm not sure which sizes, though.

Fastenal shows them for $3.62 each. Nuts are $1.07 if you go with the hex nut. Both are grade 5.

Now, if you go with the square head nut, they are $4.50 a piece. No reason for the square nut, you only need the bolt head to be square.

So, if you add it up, $4.69 for each grade 5 square head bolt/heavy hex nut plus a little shipping. Sure as heck ain't $9 a pop.

Alma Bolt in Alma MI can probably get them for you. Or Owosso Bolt &Brass in Owosso MI.

Fastenal had them when I was looking for them for my H, but they were the same price the dealer wanted for them - Nine dollars plus change.

Thanks everyone for your replies. I will try Fastenal, then perhaps Grainger since they are local. My local dealership quoted me a price of ten dollars per bolt w/o the nuts.

If you're not a "purist",you can just grind of a bit on two oppisite corners of the hex head bolt just so it will 'fit' down in the square recess.Done that several times. Steve

I put hex heads on my Super A, they fit fine. I use the zinc? plated ones and don't paint them.

Fastenal. Do an internet search. On their web site, drill down into fasteners, Square head, then size.

McMaster-Carr has them also. Around $10 for a package of 5. That is for grade 2; they also list grade 5.
