I think the replacement ones are the type which have to be hammered
in, rather than threaded. This means you have to drill out the thread
and fit the new stud to the hole.

The S3 hubs would have bigger studs.
S2A/S3 from 1970 on had Metric wheel nuts/studs with 27mm nuts. S1 and
S2 IIRC have BSF studs with 15/16th" nuts.
