Re: Interest in aluminum hub knobs?

I have a yellow one I could send you, there the same other than the color & the blue 1/2 tons don't have spicer on them. I can send the chrome piece also so you have it for test fitting ! And I wouldn't need to get them back.

Re: Interest in aluminum hub knobs?

Superwinch makes hubs with blue knobs, they don't make replacement blue knobs for Spicer hubs (which is what the custom knobs in this thread are for).

I know about the TDS knobs and the purpose of this thread. My post was about Superwinch not making replacement knobs (re: your post).

What I'd really like to see made is the chrome bezel for Spicer hubs (specifically, for D60's).

you can research this for yourself, but I was at a fastener place today , and the guy said that stainless steel bolts are not very strong, I am going to use my original bolts.

Hi Bruce, can you find out which O rings or whatever you used,(dimensions) I am having trouble finding anything that will work, thanks, Jim

Re: Interest in aluminum hub knobs?

The company where I got the seals is American Seal Co 3528 E Desmet Spokane Wa 99202. 509-534-0455. Part HRU18-250-18.
Again these have the same dimensions as the originals but not the same profile but it is close.
