MG MGA - front hub question
|I need a right front hub for a wire wheel car with disc brakes. My question is, can I use a right front hub from a drum brake car. I know from looking, that the hub has a different bolt pattern but can I just drill new holes in the hub from the drum brake car and bolt the rotor on that hub? I know that I can buy a new hub but at $150.00 each and I have a bunch of wire wheel hubs from drum brake cars.|
|Does the disc rotor fit the hub diameter?|
If so, does the disc fit centrally to the calipers?
Then if so, you could drill extra holes, provided there is a gap of at least one hole diameter between holes.
|Not sure if it is possible , but if you did I would recommend that you have a highly qualified welder close up the holes that are not being used. This would surely add more strength bach to the hub.|
|Gord, I would not do that b/c of possible flange distortion.|
