Rex;

1/2" wheel studs are kind of small, aren't they?

Just a note: 17/32 dia drill is not an uncommon drill size. It happens to be the recommended drill size for clearance for a 1/2 inch diameter bolt. I know most of us use a 1/2 inch drill for a 1/2 inch bolt but if your drill press is like mine the hole comes out .010 inch larger so the 1/2 inch bolt goes through.

We must have the same press!? grin

Bill;

In circle track racing, 5/8" wheel studs are standard. Virtually all stock car wheels are made to fit 5/8" studs, usually 5 on a 5" circle.

What should I look for huh 

I thought that magfluxing identified cracks?  These are a mild steel dom sleeves that are cut at a diag.on both ends, tig welded on the diag cut ends, and has 2 rosetts on the 1.75' insert that was a mild interference fit and the other has a 2.5" insert overlap with 3 rosettes, the weld filler was silicone bronze.  These extensions only have to function in tension and compresion.

What am I missing??--- I am not trying to be a WA!  The only way that this process could have been improved on would be to gas weld it, instead of tig it with the info that I posses.

Coaching Comments please!!!

I think he's saying to mag them for cracks/micro cracks. When we weld on our derricks, we X-ray the welds the first time, then have to mag them to get re-certifications. On non-load bearing stuff, we are required to mag new welds.

I think having your welds magged would be overkill, but that's JMHO. It sure wouldn't hurt, of course, to be positive they're perfect, as that is a criticle part!

Looks great!

Cousin Paul is right Sparky, I'm looking sideways at that thing too. It looks like you wacked off a stock tie rod & welded a tube in it. Irrelevant to the quality of your welds, the weak points are at the weld on the ends.
It might have been better to machine up a screw on sleave to extend it.
