Maybe this have been overlooked or just a bad idea. Why can't any ol adapter be purchased, say for a small ford or chevy patern, then cut off the studs. Then redrill for any pattern?

You'd lose a lot of strength that way (dissimilar metals problems, threaded "plugs").

If that was the only aluminum in the world, you should press out the studs, TIG those holes full, mill the mounting surface, and then drill the new holes.
