lugstuds

hi.. this question is directed to anyone who can help. i had to lengthen my lugstuds to be able to use my original rim. i have a 63 deville and i am doing a disc brake conversion with 69 parts. so yes my lugstuds are too short. the ones i orderd are a hair larger than the original. the knurls are the important part from what i have learned so far. i did some grinding on the parts that were too thick. anyway. i went to hammer them back in and they just werent going to go in. so i used the air wrench to tighten while i beat them in.. so i got so far then decided there has to be an easier way.. how is it i should go about getting all these studs in and seated flat? i thought maybe a bearing press.
any ideas will help me geto on the road before christmas.. thank you. blackbeard

You could probably use the "poor mans press" consisting of a deep socket and a C-clamp.

personaly i would go to the auto parts store and get the proper studs, or something that fits better. in the past i found, if it's that hard to get together ,it ain't right. good luck.

If your 1/2 inch impact wrench wont pull it in it must be to big. Better get the right ones.
