    Thank You for the comments . I believe the studs just have not been finished from when it was cast . They have to put a taper on them so they will release from the mold .

    Thanks.

    Mine are not so tapered. IMO, do not need a taper to remove, just no negatives/undercuts. You can pull a perfectly round cylinder from a mold no problem.

    The going theory on mine is removed from a damaged factory and never actually mounted. Not saying yours is bad, but is odd there are so many unfinished ones about. I mean, I can see them being finished and never deployed, but odd never finished as this would only take a few minutes at the factory.

    Also, interested in the history of mounting at the job site. I'd normally think there was a standardized bolt pattern such that the rail car could be pre-drilled and the eagle later mounted. Yet, there are different stud positions on good ones, and different sizes.

    Was this something that was custom fit for each rail mounting?
