hi everyone.

Theres any afordable and reliable hubs wich i can install in my stock 1978's BJ40 diesel land cruiser ? can't go Warn because they are very expensive where i live( 3 times more than U.S. prices!!!) and superwinch have not local dealer. I been thinking if some Asco (Aisin) hub from any other toyota vehicle can be used in mine so i can buy it from a local junker/ scrapyard.

the last but not the least:
Any one has tried electric supercharger(axial type) on stock B engine?

Thanks in advance.

1978 might have the long spline CVs, so 60 and Hilux parts wont fit.. They can be made fit by installing the correct later model short spline CV, but this will likely require axle housing clearancing.. Another option is to Martack the inner axle shafts and shorten the long spline to the short spline length to allow the FWH to fit.

Provided the splines match it should fit. Some have coarse splines, some have fine splines, I dont know what the changeover year is where you are.. Pull it apart and have a look..

what you are trying to tell me is that if both rigs have the same spline patters then they will match?mine have the fine splines.

Not all fine splines are the same length, some are long, some are short. If you have long splines, a short splined freewheeling hub wont fit. If you have short splines, a long spline freewheeling hub wont work, because you cant get the c clip retainer on. If you Martack the inner axles, a short spline in a long FWH will work and a shortened long spline in a short FWH will work. Rather than mess about Martacking and shortening splines to save money, it might just be better to find the correct parts.

You can run the shorter birf stubs in a long hub. You just have to use a fender washer instead of the C clip. Not a big deal at all.
