    I have Volkswagen Type 1 cv axles for the 1971-1980 generation Beetle. I haven't decided on what outer stub axles to use yet, because I'm trying to find the rear wheel hub and bearing assembly to use. Pretty much the above post #69 will get you up to speed on what I'm looking for. The other pages are just me asking questions on if I made a good choice on CV axles. I do have the cv axles on hand.

    So the FNR gearbox fell through, so I wont be using one. It's just going to be a regular live axle spool with a brake rotor and sprocket. The project is being changed from a single, to a two seater in the similar style as a Chenowth F.A.V but with a motorcycle engine. VW Beetle front suspension. The kind of stub axles I was looking at are https://www.partsgeek.com/gbproducts...gaAhjpEALw_wcB or these https://www.jbugs.com/product/16-2306.htmlThe outside hub is what I'm struggling to find unfortunately. Cannot locate them easily for either the Type 1 or 930. It's all custom it seems with the 930. Which is partly why I've contemplated just getting keyed axle stubs made or get rid of my Type 1 CV axles and buy something else like Chevy S10 so it's at least obtainable easily.

    So I'm now completely stumped and out of ideas. Wheel hub/bearing assemblies do not exist on aftermarket sites for the 1968-1980 VW Bug for the rear end. Stub axles no problem, bearing housings, boxed swing axle housings. Just not the splined wheel hub.

    So I feel like a dang moron. Turns out that these older VW bugs, the drum brakes double as the wheel hub. The bearings have it's own housing. Disc brake conversions, the rotors act also act as the hub.
