Any chance you would like to sell the extra wheels, front hubs, and nuts?

Thanks,
John

At this time no. I have almost 3 sets of wheels lots of front hubs and nuts and really need 2 rear hubs to put my car on the road.

I need to hold out for the rear hubs for my project. In the future I'm sure I would sell a complete set of wheels, hubs and nuts, with the Budd wheel wrench.

thnx,

brasscarguy

Brass car guy......smile.

I took two extra Budd front hubs and two rear model T hubs with good tapers/key ways and made up a rear set. Machine down the model T hubs and bored the Budd hubs and pressed/welded them together. Turned out great and was not that much work. Used an old T rear axle griped with a lath collet to keep everything true. I also drilled/tapped two 3/8-16 holes that tied both hubs together with set screws using lock tight. Do some measurements so that the brake drum is located correctly. You want some gap between the wheel hub and brake drum when the wheel is tightened. I skip welded the T hub flange to the modified Budd front hub. make sure you have both right and left front Budd hubs. I also modified Overland front spindles by welding the tops/bottoms from old model T spindles. The Overland also uses 1/2" king pins like the model T. When looking at the front spindles on my model T, they look stock. Overland has larger spindles/bearings/nuts compared to model T.
