Default Re: After 29 years, reacquired my Duplex Spirit of St. Louis set!

I once had a clutch similar to that, but the top nut was a wing nut. The top of the shaft is probably split into two or four ears that tighten around the rod as the nut is tightened. But mine had a wider threaded portion near the bottom so that two nuts could tighten around the top cymbal. Are there threads underneath the pad? Could the bottom nut be too high, covering the threaded portion that is provided for the absent middle nut?
