nice job gordie on the spacers. They should work. You will need the inner spacer which is much larger and needs to be made on a lathe

They were different for me, not exactly sure what size. Also you need to space the hub the right difference for the brake calipers to line up

ok
see where i work we sell bearings and all listings back into the 60's
depending on what year shows 84-85 use a-32 and are called fb
86 - 89 use a-32 as well and called fc
so what ever i get i will need to wait and see what they are .

i'm really not a fan of the hei distrib i have . the way the wires are bothers me so today i bought on line a msd coil, 6al box and a normal distrib.
charged 38% conversion from us funds to canadian
this has to be the last i buy from us suppliers
it sucks as nowhere in canada to find some of the needed parts
so not sure where this puts me in my build
but it looks dim on this summer to finish

I sent that same POS distributor back too, too large overall and made contact with the blower, among other things.

However if you can I'd cancel the order for the MSD stuff, they're called May Suddenly Die products for a reason. I went through 6 in a year with BS song and dance from them until I switched over to Crane and never looked back.

I ran this same one in my supercharged mustang for 6 years, sent it back once to have it looked at chasing down a random misfire that turned out to be the distributor and Fast(owns crane now) serviced it for free, with return shipping

I donít think the 90s will hurt. You pretty much have a 90 already coming off the W/P going to the t-stat.

Andrew no these are from a member in la
With me here in Canada and bad winter's we are not used to clean cars or parts
These are from a 91 and I had no idea they were made from aluminum
All I saw was from Atkins rotary at $600 ea
So when I opened the box I was floored
Just waiting on the spacer for the inner bearings . I have ordered a 3 inch round billet to turn
I decided to use the a32 bearing inner and the race is 58mm the inner for the hub is a19 or 63mm
So 63 to 58 I need
Soon as all parts and bearings are here I will post all pics with sizes and bearing numbers as a complete how to

finally made some progress with the hub related parts
we are having a winter from hell 5 storms in a row all over 50cm each
if any one is thinking about doing this 5 lub swap here is what you need
in my case i am using stock 80 spindles
these need inner bearing a-32 kit outer bearing lm11749. a-32 is 28mm and lm11749 is 18mm
the hubs are from a 91 rx7 and use a inner jlm69349 bearing and a outer 32204 bearing
the jlm69349 is 38 mm and the 32204 is 20mm
the busings need to be made from the 91 bearings to fit the 80 spindles
so a 38mm od with 28mm id spacer for the inner and a 20mm od with 18mm id for the outer
for a seal you need a 40mm x 63mm x 7mm
40mm to fit the spindle and 63 mm to fit the hub
you can see by the pic of the hubs how clean they are, i was floored when i opened the box to see them

since the car is buried under snow it will be some time before i fit them on the car
i will then need to fab some caliper brackets
