rebiuld kit for 3/4-1ton hubs

do they mke a rebuild kit for the factory locking hubs. i got one on my 83 f-350 thats bad and its more of a tow rig than play toy so i would rather rebuild it then slap a warn or mm on it .i know they make kits for those but will they work on factory as well

Re: rebiuld kit for 3/4-1ton hubs

Warn standards arent but like 60-70 bucks a pair. I cant see a rebuild kit, if you can find one, being any less hat that. And, whos to say that if you rebuild the one hub the other one wont fail? This way you have two new, working hubs.

Just buy a new/used locking hub. Check ebay. I'm keeping mine for spares in case I blow one of my Warns on the trail.

Weren't the 83 F350s installed with the D50 TTB? If so I see those hubs in the bone yard all the time. I'll admit brand new they aren't cheap.

Re: rebiuld kit for 3/4-1ton hubs

yes i have the d50 ttb its one of those things that i will only use once in a blue moon since i still have my 80 bronco ,80 yota and wifes rubicon to play with the f350 is mainly for towing the others so i can beat the crap out of them and not have to worry about how i'm getting them home .
at one point i almost swapped the axles out of the 1 ton and put them under the bronco

Well, in reality you could still spend the 200 bucks on brand new hubs and still have a heck of a truck for under 1300. Still sounds good to me.
