Dana 30 Warn Hub Conversion Kit

So I posted a few days ago about how my driver's side front hub bearing exploding on my 85 CJ7. It has the upgraded Dana 30 Warn hub conversion kit. (The one that turned it into an inner hub.) I got the hub off and cleaned everything out. In the process of the rebuild, I learned that the race spins inside the hub, rendering the hub useless. I tried to find a replacement hub, but Warn stopped making the kit in 2008 and the hub is nowhere to be found! I know I can dimple the inside of the hub to make it work, but I was wondering if anybody knew where to find the hub or maybe they had one lying around somewhere. Any help is appreciated!

What is the Spline count 27? I may have one or two but I would have to dig around. Also I just replaced my front and rear internal hubs and they were fairly easy to find. Call Warn ( 1.800.543.9276 or 1-888-520-2306) and let them know what you are looking for and make sure you let them know the spline count and that they are internal hubs.

If the race spins, but there is no lateral movement, you may be able to knurl the inside of the hub. Take a sharp tipped bit and using an air hammer, run a number of circles around the inside of the hub where the race sits. The mass of "dings" will pucker the steel, tightening it against the race. You can use red locktite or if it is tight enough, simply drive the race back in. This used to be a common practice and if the hub has minimal wear, will put you back on the road.
Personally, I would like to *** a picture of the hub, as it sounds like a stock Ford or Chevy item.

I've never had the word "see" bleeped before!

Loctite also makes a great product that will keep the race from spinning in the hub. For the life of me I can't find the part number for it though.
