this will alow you to use large wheel bearings to teplace the tiny ones on the fiero and to use the 5 X 4 3/4 bolt circle




The quoted material is from about ten years back. The link is dead at this point. Has anyone saved this? If so, can you post it?

The internet archive of that link doesn't show much:
https://web.archive.org/web.../switch/67/id215.htm

However, he reference that mod on page 7 of the newest project build, but showed some more pictures and details about it on page 19:

hub swap so I can install the wheels
first of all I removed the brake caliper and rotor to get access to the old hub
so it can be removed

with the hub removed I installed the concentric ring for the new seal surface

now that the ring is pressed on I can install the larger corvair hub with the correct bolt circle

with the hub installed the rotor now sits 5/8 of an inch closer to the spindle witch mens my brake adapter must be 1/4
of an inch thick so off to the shed I got to make a new one .
With that done I installed the front wheels and they fit perfect and with the larger front bearing less chance of failure

and the wheel is more centered over the rear bearing so less stress on the front bearing.



The corvair hubs were also the small car GM front hub and were used on some early Novas, so you can expand your search beyond just corvairs.

Camaro nova and several others use the same hub.
Call corvair ranch I bought several sets from him. I think it was around $30-35 per hub

Digging a little deeper into the link provided by fieroguru, I found the following link:
https://web.archive.org/web.../switch/67/id216.htm

I think that is what I was searching for. Thanks again. Oh yeah... and thanks again to Bubbajoe.
