VAO 28 wheel part?

I had a friend weld up the rusty areas in my VAO 28" rim and got ready to mount a good used tire I bought. But I noticed two holes in the rim and know I only have one valve stem! A look at the other rim shows there is a cast "block" (probably not the right term) on the inner side of the rim toward the hub. It fits inside the lug which the lug nut holds on. I assume it is there to keep the rim from rotating. So where can I get a replacement, and how does it fasten to the rim? Pressed into the hole? It doesn't go through a flat portion of the rim, so fabricating a replacement will be a challenge, although probably what I'll need to try if I can't get one somewhere. Thanks for any ideas. -

Like you said, these blocks keep the rim from slipping under a heavy load or if the wedges loosen up. I just took a look at the ones on my tractor and they look like a rivet with a square head, and a "V" on the underside of the head to match the rim. All you would have to do is get a short square headed bolt, cut the threaded portion off, "v-out" the back to match the rim, and have a welder plug-weld it from the back side.
