Some more work on said front hubs.

First, took the bronze inner and bored it to size to accept the SS sleeve to be made.

20151109_131335_zpslcnbfc6i.jpg?14471845

Couple 2"OD x 3" Long 316SS blanks. These were bored to the size to accept shouldered bushings that will ride on stock spindles.

20151109_161225_zpsfgmcrpm8.jpg?14471845

Next, the outer profile of the SS sleeve was turned to size and shape. The OD was turned to .001" over the ID of the Bronze inner hub. This made for a press fit. No other attachment methods will be used.

Here you can see it turned to size.

Then after it was pressed in with my old manual arbor press.

After that chucked up, and turned with some chamfered shoulders to dress them a bit.

20151110_140850_zpslsidcuvr.jpg?14471850

Then oil impregnated shouldered bronze bushings were pressed into each end. Center hub sub-assembly complete.

20151110_141528_zpsgvqlsqai.jpg?14471850

After this the center hub was pressed into the aluminum outer hub. Took two guys hanging on the arbor press handle, but slow and smooth she fell in. Added some 304SS hardware to complete.

Working on making SS studs now. Going to spot weld these crown nuts to these lengths of threaded rod. Maybe on all fours again tonight!

Mike And I finished the hub builds last night at the shop and threw them on. Basically, installing the studs. Got some pics.

Considering the metals in the front end, should we be keeping an eye out for magnesium wire wheels?
