Correct lug nuts
« on: January 06, 2019, 01:11:25 PM »
I recently acquired a total of 20 NOS C5ZZ-1012-B Ford service replacement chrome lug nuts. I have what I believe to be several of 6S281s Original Lugnuts used on its Kelsey Hayes steel wheels. The overall Length of the old one is 1 3/8, the service replacement is 1 3/16.  Does anyone have a known original that you could measure for me please?
Thanks, Karl

Perfect example of do your homework before you purchase parts on eBay. Curious, anyone know what the application is for the C5ZZ-1012-B shorter lug nuts?
