Can someone please advise me how long of a 3/4-10 square head bolt is needed to mount two rear wheel weights on to a Super M rear wheel hub? Thanks, Bill

Not very long,you bolt on the first one to the hub, the second one will bolt to the first one. Just step back and look at them,you will see what I mean.

A hex nut WILL fit into that square hole. Just buy some 3/4" threaded rod. Put a nut and lock washer on one end, insert the rod through the holes in the weights and through the holes in the hub, another lock washer and nut, and then hack saw off the excess rod. You might need only one threaded rod for each side.

I used that trick to install FOUR weights on each side.

Aren't there 4 holes? I think what was usually done was to bolt one to the wheel with two bolts with two other bolts through the weight
before mounting and then the second one was bolted to the first. Mounting one at a time was easier than trying to hold up two of them.
Or the second bolts went through some slots, I don't remember which.

Don't forget that rocket science hadn't been invented when these wheels weights were. The first weight, whether a half or a whole, was held on with two bolts, it didn't matter what length they were or whether they were hex or square headed. The second set was also held on by two bolts the same way. They locked into the notches of the first weight. 4" should be adequate for each slab. Lay the slabs on the ground, measure how far apart they sit and do the math. I have three sets of half weights on my M. I used stainless bolts because that's what I had. Obviously stainless wasn't an option when these weights were offered from the dealer. Don't overthink it. Super or not, these rims are all the same. The suggestion to use all-thread is a good one. Use it- cut it off to length. Use some blue lock-tight or Stover lock nuts (deformed), even some nylock nuts will serve you well.
