A friendly workshop here is having a problem with splined hubs for XK150.
The hubs which they got from Orson sit in too far on the axle. In turn, it’s impossible to tighten the hub on the axle.
The hubs were sent back to Orson, they checked the specs of the tapper, and they say it’s spot on.
I checked the PN and it seems that the same half shaft was used on XK120-XK140.
Since the car is a combination of XK140 & XK150 parts, I begun to wonder if the axle is not a XK140 axle instead of XK150.
The car has disc brakes in the rear.
Anyone has an idea what the problem might be??
First assumption was that the axles have been machined, but it the old splined hubs sit fine on the axle!..
