    Spicer (the manufacturer name) hubs are simply the OE locking hubs that GM used until around '80/81. The style on the 72 axle should be an external mount design, I have a couple of pics in the "Parts" album on my Webshots page.

    As for rebuild parts, good luck. Dana discontinued these hubs years ago and usually the only way to get them is either Ebay or from a dealer. You can have the parts dept at your local dealer use their locator to find another dealer that still has some of these obsolete parts. They're cool (I think) but hard to find/service.

    ok thanks. i knew they didnt look like the ones on my 69. the spicers are like twice the size. i looked in your webshots they are the external mount kind. i will run them until they fall apart. the wheel bearing parts shouldnt be hard to find right just the hub parts.

    thanks

    Yeah, just the hub parts are hard to find. I see sets of them occaisionally on Ebay. The bearings, bearing hubs, etc. are readily available, only the Spicer locking hubs are discontinued.

    BTW - (of course) Warn and other companies make replacement locking hubs to fit the axle.
