Default Mounting 80s Ludwig toms

Does anyone know what size hole Ludwig used for their tom mounting brackets in the mid-80s? I have a set with four rack toms that I'm hoping to mount on a rack (which I do not own yet), but I want to find out what I would actually need. Also, I have been wondering if there's a way to replace the regular nuts that tighten the tom on to the mount, because I don't want to have to use a spanner (wrench) every time I set up or tear down.

If you guys could help me out with this I'd really appreciate this, as I have not had much success so far and really want to actually be able to use the drums I have.

Those were 9mm L-arms.
The part to replace the hex bolts is a P-2952, or a P-3903, which is the fatter version and is easier to grip.

Hope this helps.

That's brilliant, thank you so much!

EDIT: I already have the L-arms, what could I attach them on to mount them on a rack with modern clamps?
