How many of you enjoy doing machine work?
These axle hubs, rotors and 3 piece wheel setup pictured are for a build I'm doing here in the shop.
Long story short, These rear axle hubs an rotor hats needed to be changed from a 5x4" lug pattern to 5x120 pattern. This meant fixturing the rear axles in the milling machine. This is a very critical procedure, do not attempt to do this without the proper equipment if you decide to attempt such a task. Its extremely important everything is flat, true and centered. If anything is off, the wheel studs will not be squared and will result in the wheels not fitting.
Rear hubs where drilled to 5x120 & tapped for 5/8" wheel studs.
Now after I finished the rear rotor hats I started working on the center section of the 3 piece wheels we are using. The Lug bore was undersized an in order to mount these wheels they had to be opened up to accept the 5/8" big boy studs.
After further inspection, it was clear that the hub centric diameter was undersized on these wheels for the rear axle hubs we are using. So, after some measurements and dialing in the boring equipment. The hub centric diameter was enlarged to fit onto the hubs with a nice snug fit!
