Re: D30 parts swap questions!!!

My question is, Can you swap the 6 bolt hubs from a pre 81 D30 with the 5 bolt hubs on my 82???

Yes. Do you have the spindle to go with the 6 bolt hubs? I'm not sure if they are different or not. The knuckles are the same for both. The brakes are different but interchangable. The wide trac uses calipers that slide on bolts. The narrow trac has a bracket that bolts to the same holes the wide trac's bolt to. I am using the narrow trac spindles, hubs and brakes on my wide trac axle. I would have used the wide trac brakes but I used the calipers that were already bolted on and bled.
I do have a pair of 5 bolt lockouts too. Unfortunately, they are still in the storage building in Rogers, 3 hours away.
