mgb axle

Post by stuupnorth »

hi all
I'm looking into fitting a mgb rear axle
after installing (1275 midget engine and box)
would like to keep the original look ie steel wheels
can anyone advise on the idea of re-pcding the rear hubs of the axle to keep the 4" pcd for the minor wheels?
as i have a disc conversion on the front which suits the minor wheels(esm kit)
cheers
Stu

Do you mean Ford (Escort/Capri?) half-shafts & drums fitted to a Minor axle, or an MGB one?
