Theres no factory adapters on a rear dually axle; the whole axle housing is wider.

There's aftermarket spacers - usually 3-4" thick - you can get to fit dual wheels. I caution, this arrangement isnt as strong as the correct axle.

I've got them on my 86 F350 with the ford 10.25, "warning": it's a pain to do brake work. But I've seen a 10.25 on the 85 f250 that had dually wheels, that truck was a cab chassis wearing a flatbed though.

It's a dually conversion. Originally an 86 F250 srw with the sterling 10.25 that has adapters added to it. Someone along the line put left handed lugs in drivers side adapter so in trying to take the wheels off I screwed up the studs on that adapter.

You may be able to change the studs.

Finding a spacer or spacers... Might get lucky at an auto wrecker? For the cost of new (probably a pair) you could afford the right width used axle and have proper payload capability. (Even go disc brake while youre at it.)
