It you are just looking for a plain flat nut, then speedway motors sells 11/16-18 fine thread jam nuts that are stainless steel.

I'm pretty sure that they would have to be grade 8.

These are for a floating hub. I'm pretty sure they have a proprietary press in stud. I'll have to look again. I do remember that they are press ins.

Thanks everyone for looking those up. I'm pretty sure that the 18-8 Stainless is no where near hard enough. Too bad because dimensionally the ones that 460pulling looked up are just right......UUUUUGH! lol

Thanks Rex.Those are for the back side of the axle flange when you have screw in studs.....and it's 5/8" lol.

Gang, I have live hubs, a full floater 9" (no, it's not stock lol) The hub is aluminum with press in studs and they go through a drive plate on the face of the hub and the axle is splined into the drive plate.....And they ARE 11/16" fine threaded studs. I'm thinking that this type of hub is old school high horsepower stuff.
