hubs

want to go to Fuchs on my 1973 914. I have rebuild the front end with 911S parts with the 3.5 upright but what am I going to do on the rear. Will the 911 hubs fit on the 914? will the splines match up ? how about the disc/ I plan on going with non S Boxster brakes
Thanks

There are a few options to get five-lug rear hubs. Here is a Pelican Tech Article describing most of them.

The splines in the 914 hubs are different from the ones in the 911 hubs, so if you go with 911 (or 914-6) hubs you need to change the stub axles to the 911 (or 914-6) style. But the 914 axles are a different length from the 911 ones, so ... And so forth. There are some specific combinations of parts that are known to work (Sir Andy over on the 914world site has a post over there describing one of them), but it is generally easiest to re-drill the 914-4 rear hubs and install press-in studs.

Why Boxster brakes? The stock system is, when in good working order, more than good enough for street use. The Boxster parts will add an extra layer of complication, and are very unlikely to help anything. I don't know if the rears will give you any parking brake, and those are good to have. Plus the Boxster parts are much larger and heavier than the stock bits, which makes for slightly worse handling and ride.

Besides, the cylinder size in the Boxster rears will throw out your front to rear brake balance a ton.

I'll have a drilled set of rears in a few months (PMB, Erics hubs). You'll just have to buy the drilled rotors. Best, Mark

I believe there is a guy on 914world that will redrill your stock hubs for $175 if you supply him your cores. He posted recently, so it should be easy enough to find.

Yes, that would be (bdstone914) on 914world.
