need some help. have a 1951 farmall m with wide front end. i am changing it to narrow front end for pulling to get into 4500 pound class. the problem i have is the pedestal did not come with hubs. so from what i have been reading the wide front end hubs will not work as spindles on wide front end are smaller. the question i have is what will fir on it? and some bearing numbers that may work in the hubs from the wide front end.

I did that with an H a few years ago. I used Massey 44 hubs best I recall. I measured the spindle OD's and hub ID's; took that to the parts guy to get bearings, races, etc. and put it together with 12 inch boat trailer wheels and tires, (I had to drill some holes). Worked like a charm. gm

A picture of what you have would be nice. In general there were wide fronts set up to use the original hubs, IH, Schwartz to name a couple. Then there were speeco and others that were generic and had six bolt hubs on them. A narrow front from a 460 would be lighter and have smaller spindles than a 560. The casting number on the narrow front would let you find what it came from. Then there is some companies making tubular narrow fronts with six bolt hubs on them. I guess there is different options out there. Like I said pictures and more info is needed.
