Difference between 240 and 260 front hubs
Posted 19 June 2015 - 08:11 PM
I'm struggling with brake conversions and no one seems to know the difference between the 240 and 260 hubs in regards to the position of the wheel mounting flange.....
This thread deals with discs and hat heights: http://www.viczcar.c...opic=168.5;wap2 and states in regards to discs:
Stock 240z is 271mm 12.7mm thick (solid) 52mm hat and 81mm centre
260z is 271mm, 12.7mm 43.5mm hat and 81mm centre
Does this mean that the 260 wheel mounting flange is 8.5mm further outboard than a 240? Or is the 260 wheel mounting flange in the same place as the 240 and just the disc height is different?
Reason I ask is that Ive got 16 x 8 zero offset wheels and I dont want to push them any further outboard by using 260 hubs...if they are differnt to 240's that is!

To install the ArizonaZ Wilwood kit you need the 260Z hubs. As I understood it, the 260Z hubs position the rotors central to the callipers. If that's correct, it would follow that the difference in the two hubs is the location of the wheel flange face.

Dimitri, I'm thinking I'm going to have to go with Gerhard's Z32 conversion for various reason which I will explain when I get more info. Are you sure his conversion uses Mustang (DBA106) discs as according to the DBA catalogue they are a hub and disc combined?

If the 260 hub wheel mounting flange is in the same position as the 240 then Ive no issues with juggling hat heights to make the brakes work.

260 is the better option when building big brake kits for them as they push the disk further away from the rear of the wheel face allowing more room for big calipers. Or saying the same thing in a different way it moves the disk further inwards while maintiaining the same wheel offset/location.

Too old, too slow, too stupid.
