Anyone happen to know if a c clip that fits a 74 (drum coarse birfs) will also work for a later model disk frontend??

They appear to be sized exactly like the 27 spline inners. is the birfield stub a 27 or 30 spline?

Too many parts too far away..

So the stub on a coarse birf is smaller than a fine spline birf..

Bummer.

Smaller tires will not make any difference with trying to run drum brake birfs in a disck brake spindle...They are not going to function properly, period.
