    I don't think so Ford knuckles spindles are different so the hub and rotor probably are too. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    My 83 K5 has the entire hub assembly from an F250. I don't think you can swap just the locking mechanism, as it is extremely different. The Ford's are huge and stick out about 4 inches. Also, they are attached with big giant allen bolts. So yes, I believe you can swap the entire spindle and rotor assembly. If anyone knows different, I'm sure they will correct me on that.

    That sounds like an external-hub D44 as opposed to the more common internal hub.

    Also remember that there are "hubs" (locking, Warn, Milemarker, etc) and "hubs" (brake hub, that the rotor bolts to and the other hub goes into.)
