Hi chaps.
Have rung treg trailers asking for a flangeless hub, as I am changing my spare wheel carrier from bush's to bearings.
They didnt know what it was.

Any suggestions for where to get one in Adelaide.

cheers

I also made the conversion from a bush to bearing set up some time ago and need a hub.
I have since changed vehicles and have made a rear bar, twin wheel carrier now needing two hubs.

I obtained two Holden HQ stub axle and hubs with bearings to suit.

I machined the hub down but left a section so that it is part of the locking system.

Hub machined down with locking holes drilled.

Wheel carrier locked with spring load pin into the flange.

This might be a better option than the flangeless hub.


Why I went for the Holden HQ hubs and bearings is that they should be available at a corner store. Compared to the wheel bearings for the Troopie the HQ ones are very small.

Hiya Darian,

I tried them, but unfortunately, they dont have any.
They suggested searching the net to find someone who does.
Of which I already have, and come up with the affore mentioned WA crowd, but wanted to shop locally.

Hmm May take up the offer to cut off a flanged section, where are you located, Im near castle plaza Edwardstown.

cheers

That was Louie making the offer re machining - just as well - I would probably get horribly tangled up in lathe.

You might have to buy a stock hub and machine the flange off. If you don't have facilities to do it I may be able to assist with the machining.

When I built our spare wheel carrier, I machined up one myself.Any machine shop should be able to knock one up pretty quick and not to dear.

The trouble with using a normal cast hub is that they quite often crack when welding to the casting, if not when you are welding but later when in use.
I had a local machine shop make them for $30 each. They were about 3" OD and the internal was machined to take normal holden trailer bearings, seal and grease cap. Just buy a stub axle and bearings from a trailer place.
