PCC traction wheel dimension question

A PCC traction question. Does anybody have the wheel center hex dimension as found on many of the PCC trolleys?  Clark trucks, I believe.  Hex and thickness?  Any and all wheel and truck details would be very helpful.  Thanks

Looking specifically for N scale or 1:1 information?  :trollface:

Either way.  I have a three dollar calculator right here! :)

The best would be an actual drawing of the wheel and/ or the truck but what I need pretty soon is the wheel center hex dimensions as I'm trying to get drawings ready for a wheel run for these chassis I've been working on.  Wanted to run a few sets for PCC trucks while I'm running the others as that's my next project and I don't want to have to set up again for just a few prototype sets if I don't have to.
