Question 5 Bolt Hubs, Stub Axles and CVs

I'm putting a 5 bolt wheels on my 75 914, and planned on drilling
the old hubs and pressing studs in.
But then I got to Thinking, I do have a 73 911 setup. hubs, axles,
915 grearbox.
Can you get the 911 hubs and stub axles to fit.?
and will the larger 911 CV joint fit on the 914/6 CV Axle.?

Thanks:
Doug S

The 911 stuff is not compatible on the rears. Other wise we would be swapping the stuff out like mad.....

The SC front ends are an excellent replacement though....

You are stuck with pulling the rear hubs, drilling them, pressing in new studs, replacing the rear bearing and re-installing. The rear bearings usually get destroyed on the removal.....

Good luck.

Doug, you might also check the PP 914 Five Bolt Pattern Conversion Guide for some ideas.

You can put the early 911 stub axles and the 911 CVs onto a 914. You will need an adapter to mate the 911 CV to the 914/901 drive flanges. Let me know if you need the adapter.

Hi Jim

Yes I would like to get the adapters.
do you make them yourself? are they steel or aluminum.?

I was looking at the hubs and axles a little more today
and it looks like everything will fit, but the 911 main axle is little
shorter then the 914 ones.

you end up with the Right Hubs and the larger (stronger)
911 CVs

Doug_S,

Yes, I can have these adapters made. Just email me and we can work out the arrangements.

In my car, I have the early 911 CVs, stub axles and 911/901 drive flanges. Works great

It depends on your needs and horse power. I used stock CVs and axles with a 230hp+ 911 motor. I know of V8 powered 914 using stock axles.

DO YOU REALLY need the upgrade? Jim races his 914 a lot, and puts it thru some nasty abuse.....

Hi Mike

Why not upgrade..
I have the parts and it saves me the cost of drilling studs or
buying 914/6 Hubs.

I'm sure the stock CVs will handle the 200hp I'm running now.
But you got to plan for the future. Bigger, faster, better, stronger...

For me, the main reason for going to the 911 CVs was to compensate for the extra HP of a 3.2 motor. IMHO, the 914 CVs are good for about 200 HP. After that, change over to the 911 CVs. I have had an outer 914 CV failure... lessons learned.
