Default 14 bolt width

I have a 14 bolt out of an 80's chevy 3/4 ton and am wondering what the width is flange to flange as it is in storage some distance away.

They both have the same WMS? The one in my Suburban seems narrower than that visually.

I see the part you read. Scroll down a little farther from that and look at the chart. I think what you posted was just a typographical error by him that never got corrected.

http://www.pirate4x4.com/tech/billav...ble/index.html

SRW = 67.5"
DRW = 72"
C&C = 63.5"
Van = 70"

I just built one from a 99 old body style one ton single rear wheel and after converting to discs it comes out to 65.25 wms to wms. Not sure why and have never seen one like that. The hubs look to be somewhere between c&c and the normal single wheel. The only difference was the newer ones have a serviceable brake drum that comes off over the studs as opposed to having to press out the studs to get them off. But yes, yours should be 67".

I keep reading the 14 bolt bible and I cant find an exact answer, how much width do you take off by changing single wheel hubs with C&C/Dually?

Would it really be that much? Essentially you would take a SRW and put the same hubs on it that a C&C uses, but the backing plates are not in the same place.

I just need to find some hubs and find out.
