Rear hub wanted

Postby Reinsch » Fri Mar 08, 2019 10:38 pm

Hello,

I'm in need for rear hub as mine has damaged splines.
I only need part of hub with studs, important part are splines - they need to be in very good condition.

Photo for reference :

If you look carefully, left one has damaged splines, right one is perfect. I'm looking for one like the one on the right. They can be corroded, not a problem.

Surely you can clean them up with a file. It doesn’t look that bad

Damage on splines appeared as main hub nut was not torqued to spec, which results in poor clamping force on bearing. Once that is compromised and you accelerate and brake hard, driveshaft and hub splines are trying to grind each other off to allow rotation. After many cycles, there starts to be play as splines are damaged. Hub nut starts to come off due to little rotations and vibrations. Inner bearings tracks are starting to spin on driveshaft as nut is loose enough.
Here is when I bought my car and started restoring it.
If I would drive it, I would eventually loose a wheel while driving.
Furthermore I'm swapping engine and expecting over 210HP. That hub would fly off sooner or later.
