Thank you. I really appreciate the help. Looks like I have a bit of a challenge ahead of me locating hubs to fit my truck. I guess I expected that when the Warn rep was having problems making a definitive selection.

Ok guys, tell me if you think this is a crazy idea. As per my earlier post, the Warn 9790 fit perfectly except that it didn't sit back far enough to fully engage the splines in the axle. What if I had the cylinder on the wheel hub machined to shorten it? That would move the Warn hub back further onto the axle. There appears to be plenty of clearance inside the cylinder of the wheel hub. WDYT? Is this idea crazy?

Thank you for sending this along. Since it is a live auction, I have placed it on my watch list to see how crazy the bidding gets. Once again, my truck (1962 GMC K1001) is not specifically listed in the fitment notes. Is there a way to confirm these will actually fit?

I would give Mile Marker a call. And do some searches on the internet. This is the third time he had then up for sale.

milemarker.com

I spent a lot of time searching the web. Found three sites that listed the Mile Marker hub in stock only to call and find out it was not. Finally bit the bullet and bought the ones on eBay. This lets me move on to the next task, the distributor. Thanks for your help and suggestions.
