    will the free wheeling hubs off a drum brake 40 fit my disk brake 1976 40? if so will running different hubs on each side (one stock one drum brake hub) cause drama's

    No it won't work. The splines are different on the birfields.

    No NO! As the othe rpost said there is a spline difference. Locking hubs are cheap, est thing is to buy new or good used.

    thanks, i was looking into good used ones, and all i could find were drum brake ones... the search continues.

    how hard would it be to just take the outer cap/casing off, with the turn dial. it's only the cruddy plastic dial that's cracked.
