Default Re: 40 Ford rear hubs

I am not aware of any sleeve system and I will tell you the hub housing, in the bearing area, is VERY difficult to rebore with a cutting tool.

There have been some adaptations of different bearings in the hubs. I think Lawrie on this site listed some info several months ago. A search might turn something up.

Finally, how bad is it and how much use is intended?? I have seen some really raunchy bearing bores that had no undesirable affect on the bearing. If you can not locate a better hub a careful exam might be in order. The Ford bearing is wide and apparently can pass over some pitted areas without sustaining immediate damage.
