Drums Pontiac Bonneville 67
 
Hi,

I have some problems with my front drums, There where my wheel bearrers are is broken, i can move the outer ring of the wheel bearrer to te left and right it isnt stuck, like it supost to be.
So i've tried to find me a new mid cilinder or drum but the problem is my bolts to attach the wheel and the midcilinder is out of one piece and on the internet i cant find a mid cilinder or the bolts, even the same drum with the bolts and cilinder out of one piece
i went to an all american cars and parts store but they coudent find it ether so what should i do....?

Does somoene know where i can find these drums
Or ive been thinking to replace the front drums by disc brakes... can i do that without any dramatic changes ....?

here are some pics

It is hard to tell from the pic's, but it looks like the wheel bearing races are ok. Do you know if it is just the wheel bearings that you need?
If the hub needs replaced, I believe they need to be pressed out of the drum and a new one pressed in. The bearings and races are available as is the drum. Not sure about the hub.
Check for all parts except the hub Here

This is one way to put disc's on it.

If you press out the wheel studs, you can separate the hub from the drum. You can also press the bearing races out of the hub if necessary to replace them. I'm sorry, but you post wasn't terribly clear.

It 'appears' that he needs replacement hubs.

67/8 big pontiacs should be the same, as they are essentially the same car.
Some other GM cars may use the same hub as well.

Be careful----there may be a hub change between the the Bonneville and the rest of the lineup.
Same may be true for the other GM models.
