I ran a 3/8" into the hub it felt a little sloppy, that is why I was wondering.

I have seen most older 150's used 3/8" bolts and some newer 150's and all the 160's had 7/16" bolts, lug outer diameter 5/8" with both sizes.

We make plates for just about every application, but for the most part unless it is specified differently, the standard plates are cut for 1/2" bolts with 3/4" drive bushings. Also we make sleeve type bushings for the mount bolt spacers for engines with 5/8" drive bushings.
