D70 and 14 Bolt Hubs

Are the hubs from a 70 and a 14 bolt interchangeable?

And are there any 70 dual rear wheel axles? What would they have come in?

I am looking for a set of hubs for a 14bolt cab and chassis, and have heard that 70s will interchange with 14s, but I need ones with the same distance from the outer flange mounting surface, to the WMS.

I have an idea about using the cab and chassis hubs on a full width 14 (67" WMS to WMS). The full width I can find MUCH cheaper around here, and this combo may put the backing plate mount in a better place for rear disc brackets (vs. being ~3" too far towards the center) and put the WMS to WMS at 63".

Re: D70 and 14 Bolt Hubs

Im not sure i know exactly what your asking, but dont forget that a d-70 shaft is 1.5" and 35 splines
a 14 bolt shaft is 1.5" and 30 splines...

Re: D70 and 14 Bolt Hubs

i doubt it, but go to a parts joint and ask to see the bearings for both hubs. If they are the same, then all you have to worry about is the distance between them.the spindles may be longer on one or the other.
its unfortunate, but most of the d-70's I've seen cant be cut down, and none of the 14 botls can, so i see where you are comming from now..
something tells me the 14 bolt is going to have bigger bearings though...

Charly, just bring your trailer and buy the D70 in the yard, then match it to your 14 Bolt.

I think the D70 has larger bearings (but have no proof to substantiate this) but the 14 Bolt uses the additional pinion bearing so it's designed better. I can't remember where I read that, but it comes to mind.
