Re: D44, Chevy spindles,Ford hubs???Help!!!
The odest Chevy they had at Reno Auto Wrecking was a 77, ther was 4 of tem and they all had the bigger spindles. So I had my freind look up the part number for a 75 and got the 5 number code on the spindle cross referenced. I was then abe to find 2 spindles at the Junk Yard, and I have 2 Ford Hubs and rotors from an 82 Bronco. THey look like they will work, but I didnt have a chance to get new bearings and races to really try to fit them. I didnt get to see them on a vehicle so I dont know about the brake mounts and calipers,(what they look like?). Are they same as the newer Chevys??? I have to use the Chevy calipers, because of the milled flat area on top of the drivers side knuckle, and the custom milled knuckle now on the right side(dont know what they started out as).
I have been taking pictures, and will post tomorrow or as soon as I can,(I dont have a company digital Cam at the time, I really liked that thing).
Jeepgod, Thanks for the help,(but the Junk Yard exploring, no doubt did me good). And to think, my Nick Name in the Navy used to be "Junkyard",or"Junk", because of my "Junkyard Dog", disposition. You would think I d be a natural.
"Jeep" Build one, and youll understand!
