Oh I get it, the cap studs don't hold the bar, the bar is above and goes over top of the nuts. I assumed it would be all bolted together by the main studs/bolts. Nice.

I made cap supports sort of like that for 9" ford rears that fit in stock housings before aftermarket cases were plentiful, with through bolts and a flat machined on the cap and .001 squeeze fit.
