I have been watching your progress, please keep us informed.
Back to the wheel studs.  My '52 M38 was missing one stud on each wheel on the left side.  Some one had problems in the past.  All wheel studs are right hand now.  Chrysler had the same set up on wheel studs years ago, I do not know about other makers.

Something to read while you wait if your rod bolts had PAL nuts on them you can get new ones from aircraft, way less expensive.
