Are the Model T Ranch hubs and the Texas T Parts hubs the same thing?

Why not call Ben or John and ask?

Yes, John Stolz (?) sells his hubs through Texas T and many of the other dealers. Be careful if you put them in an early (small drum) car. There are some clearance issues.
Regards,
Jon

Three areas that I have found using safety hubs. One is the springs that hold the park brake shoes in place will hit the wheel nuts. My fix was drilling a 1/8 hole in the backing plate behind the spring and with a cotter key installed through the backing plate, push the spring closer to the plate and wrap the cotter key around the spring.
Another is the park brake shoes will hit the wheel nuts and needs to be ground down where the shoes fit the cam.
Sometimes the wheel nuts need to have a bit remove from the edge to clear the spring shackle nut or the shackle nut needs to be ground down to clear.
All are easy fixes but you may or may not need to do all of the above.
