I am looking for 1910 rear hubs for the straight axles. Does any one know of someone who might have a one or a pair of the 5 1/2 size? I do have a nice 6 inch one for the straight axle. I also have a 6 inch one that needs some machine work. Do you know of someone who is familiar with these hubs and does machine work? It has been suggested that the 6 inch ones could be reworked into 5 1/2 inch ones. Who does this? Any suggestions appreciated.
Langs list new ones $350 for pr.
I will check. I was told they are are "look a likes" and are made out of later hubs and are made to fit taper axels. I will check now.
from Langs catalog. Description of item.
This is a pair of rear wheel hubs and hub flange plates for use with wood wheels only They are machined for the TAPERED style early axles only. Flange is 5-1/2” in diameter. (Will not work with wire wheels.)
NOTE: Tapered axles use a castle nut to hold the hub on. (Straight axles use a round pin that is held in place by the hub cap.)
I am look for one or two original hubs 5 1/2 or 6 inch.
Scroll down on the parts list a little further, Part # 2815ES 09/11 hubs for straight pin axles.
I bought a rear hub many yrs ago that I think is model t but don't know for sure.
How can I tell. Can't do pics.
6 or 5 1/2 inch plates? For straight axel? There would be a hole for a pin by the treads. My old hubs are at home. I will take a photo of my good 6 inch and post it tomorrow. You could look at the hubs for sale at Langs. They are under wheels.
Are the Langs hubs new manufacture or are they made from later hubs?
They are CNC machined from billet steel. Very nice. They wait until they have enough orders for a production run. Let me know if you are going to order, I want a pair of the 6" version for my car.
