Allow me to translate that into 5x5-1/2 adapters with integral concentric rings/locators for the 32 ford rims.

I guess you have three wheels? The fourth fills the barrel back.

What the heck is a udrill hub? What's wrong with drilled hubs? :shock: :cheers:

For those readers who are not aware of a "Udrill Hubs/rotors" here is a picture of my Mustang II Udrill hubs/rotors that are spot drilled with all the possible locations for various lug patterns. I chose to go this route to ensure having the option of 5 holes on a 5-1/2" pitch circle.

Wow. I was wrong all the way around on this one! HA!

It appears the original drums are not flat so the support provides a raised center to clamp against instead of a concentric ring. Obviously a spacer and not an adapter if you drill 5.5 through I’d avoid spacing any more than needed to minimize scrub.

Where did you get the rotors? I recall seeing them in street rod magazines years ago.

A primer for us regular folk:

Decided to part out the second donor bike to clear workshop space. This bike had crash bars that bolted under the engine to the original center stand mounts so I needed some lift.
Considered buying an engine crane but used my Little Giant ladder and a come-a-long, worked fine.

Been a bit lazy what with changing Tig Torch and hose for a smaller size, obtaining a Metric gas fitting for my Welder and changing jobs has seen a slow down in activity. Should be back up soon.
