The threads on the hub are worn and lug bolts won't stay tight on gravity wagon gear is there a drive in stud out there to convert these over to lug nuts without re drilling the hub? just drive into existing threads? Does nappa or mutual wheel make a reto kit?

I would try bolts with the same diameter and thread, run them in from the backside, if there"s enough room. Probably enough thread to hold them in, and head against hub willl prevent pull out.

And a generous dab of red Loctite to keep them in place!

Get longer wheel bolts and put a nut on the back side of the hub.

Probably wouldn't be that hard to find hubs to fit your spindles and switch them over that way. I don't know how much experience you have fixing stuff I'll share a few thoughts-drilling or reaming them for studs sounds like a sound idea but getting the new larger holes exactly where they are supposed to be could be difficult,if they're a bit off your wheel may not be centered and it's going to hop when you pull it at any speed, this might be a job for a machine shop and someone still has to figure out if the hub has enough meat to bore out the stud holes and not get weakened in the process. Bolts through from the backside may have merits, just make sure the bolts you use are as good or better than wheel studs or lug bolts or you could have wheels flying off, there's never a good time for that. I guess I'm saying the safest way is new hubs, from there it's your wagon, you know how much weight you haul, how fast and far you pull it, how much your cargo is worth, how much you have to loose if the patched hub fails and injures someone and your risk tolerance.

I ran into that witha running gear,I got new studs at Napa but the holes were worn just enough that the studs would turn when you tightened the lug nuts,we just spot welded the back of them,they been on that wagon like that for over twenty years

Have fixed many-a-one by doing that, sticking a stud through from the back and nickel welding it in.
