I currently have a Ford 9" floater rear end with wide 5 hubs. I was wondering if anyone sold 5x5 floater hubs that wuld fit this rear end with the current snouts?
Thanks for any info

Does it have the large bearing, Grand National snouts? If it does, then most GN 5 on 5 hubs will fit. Speedway Engineering, Howe, D & M, Afco, all make hubs for Grand National snouts.

What would be the measurement if it did have the large bearing snouts?

Dasher;
What are the inner and outer bearing numbers?

Wide 5 snouts are to long to fit GN style or a 5X5 style hub.

Are there two different size snouts on a 9"? For floater hubs, I thought one size fits all. I have Howe hubs that fit, but Coleman that won't. Does it have something to do with a Grand National rear end?

I'd try calling or emailing to coleman machine i think his hubs use the bigger bearings like on the wide 5. Another think u can do is to repalce the snouts.
