    Thanks Dave. It is comforting to see that I am not alone. Do not know how I missed your tread since I have been trying to sort out this problem for a while.

    I never use them, but I will try.

    EDIT: I saw it, thanks. It is hard to imagine it is the same car. It is a different color and went from NY to FL to CA. I wonder if the Serial Number is really correct (the same as my 1964). What was the source of the information?

    No one has mentioned wheel studs. I am in the process of changing the studs on my 60 Lark ( V 8 drum brakes) and picked up a pair of newer drums. I say newer because they are the smooth kind with double lips at the baking plate. This style is on my 64. My 60 drum only has 1 lip at the backing plate. One hub was bad on the drums I bought so I am using my hub that came on my 60 and now find that the hole for the stud is 20 thousands smaller. I am afraid to press in the studs with that much difference in size and the hub is now at a machine shop to be sized correctly for the studs. I always thought they were the same but I have discovered a difference. Can hardly wait for the front to be done so I can tackle the back.

    Starting in 1954 they are the same size bearings. Earlier were different (larger).

    Rotor Hubs are NOT the same as Drum Hubs.

    Seals, Inner and Outer Cups and Bearings for '56 to '66 are different (smaller) than earlier.

    I hope you did not BET much!

I have an inkling that the 55 and earlier are different on that point, as well as the lugs being RH/LH.


    thx
    No.
    For rear axles: I believe the bearings are the same for 1955 - 1965 with tapered axles. I believe that the seals are the same for 1955 - 1966, except 23 & 27 axles are different from 44 axles.

    Please correct me if I am wrong on this (didn't look in parts books).

    EDIT: Please disregard the above. I was answering for rear axle and I just noticed that the topic says front axle. Instead of deleting it all, I thought that I would leave the information for others.

    EDIT II: For the front, I believe that the bearings and seals are the same for 1956 - 1966.
