I am going to machine a set of safety hubs for my 24. I think I can work it out if need be but does anyone have a drawing a suggestion of material
And or a bearing number they would share it would
Make things simple. Thanks philip
4140 is usually a nice tough steel to work with.
If you have wood wheel hubs, be sure to rely upon more than the 6 hub bolts to support the weight of the car. They're not strong enough and can not rigidly retain the location of the bearing. Things will start to work loose. For my Model N, (very similar to a T hub), I riveted the ring, into which the bearing fits, to the brake drum, which in turn, solidly locates on the boss that's on the back side of the hub. Of course, the 6 bolts are still there as well. I believe I used 6, 1/4" rivets, flush riveted on the "spoke side" of the brake drum. I also cut a counter bore on the inside face of the drum that the bearing ring fit's nicely into. It's maybe .050 deep.
