Default Front Wheel Cylinder bolts

Working on my 64 1000, noticed something really weird, the bolt size that attaches the wheel cylinder to the upper spindle bracket is different size left to right side. The driver's side the thread size is 3/4", the passenger side is 9/16". Anyone care to venture a guess why the different sizes? This is original because the upper ball joints have never been off the truck (riveted) so I know the spindles havent been changed through out its lifetime.
Things that make you go hmmm......
