Model T Ford Forum: Classifieds: Want To Buy This Front Wheel Hub!
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Bill Everett on Saturday, November 05, 2016 - 10:06 am:

I want to find/buy this hub. The car I'm building is a late 'll / early '12.

I want to mount the speedometer road gear shown in the box onto this hub similarly to the one shown on the '11.

If anyone would part with the hub I'd like, please e-mail me at bill.everett@epickett.com. Please include a couple of pictures and how much you'd like for your hub.

Thanks.

You need one with the ridge around the backside and the 3 factory holes for the gear?

Gary;

Yes, I believe you're right.

I have had this for many years. The inner side is a bit rough, but the ridge seems to be smooth.
It appears to be useable, but it is as found.

Daryl;

Please lay it on it's side and shoot a picture the ridge right behind the threads.

If the ridge matches the ridge-behind-the-threads in the picture I posted, I believe it is what I'm looking for.

Thanks, Daryl.

The 1912 speedometer gear does not index on the hub, and is the same as the gear used in 1911. The 1911 - 12 hubs are 6" diameter and do not have the machined area or lip shown in that photo.

A correct 1911 - 12 speedometer installation looks like this:



The hub for a 1911 - 12 looks like this:

Like Charley said the hubs with the raised lip and machined flat are for 1914 - 1915 model years. Those look like the photos Bill posted in the first one at the top of this thread.

Bill, I have this front hub if it's what you want.

mine is the short thread. I have heard that the treads can be cut from short to long, if one wants to alter the short thread one.

I hope Chris moves this thread to the regular forum! A lot of good information and photos here.

Grab any hub you want, chuck it up and machine a flat spot for your gear.... no?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Royce in Dallas TX on Saturday, November 05, 2016 - 07:27 pm:

Tim,

No, the earlier (pre - 1914) hubs are smaller diameter, so you can't machine it to get the lip. And the later ones made by Ford and others from 1918 - 27 are already the correct diameter to fit the speedometer gear. So you can't machine one of those to get the "lip" that is seen on the 1914 - 1917 hubs.

What would we do without you Royce?

I'd also like to buy two of the '11 - '12 hubs that look like the one that Royce posted.

early hub

I have this one if anyone would like it. It does not have the ridge for the speedo gear but is an early hub.
