Hi Does anyone know an easy way to change front hubs on my Valiant to the larger lug spacing?

1 Redrill current hubs and drums to LBP

2.change to '73-'76 disc brake setup.

Neither are easy...there really isn't an easy way.

Actually, you could run the bolt pattern adapters, but I wouldn't...they aren't very safe.

best way is to use 1973 and newer A body stuff,,are you talking drum or disc ? the factory disc stuff is getting harder to find, some one out there has to have a kit adaptable from off the shelf parts,,
search rusty hope he has a lot of mopar conversions,,,there are other guys but i cant think of there names at the moment,,

73 - 76 stuff like said above. You'll need upper control arms with ball joints, lower ball joints, brake master, prop valve, rotors, and spindel's. Take it all from the donor car. Ball joints you might want to buy new.

I think that's it.

You'll notice such a huge improvement in braking. Also Google big block dart and look at there tech pages, tons of brake info

How did you center everything up and get the spacing?

Once upon a time I redrilled the rear of a SBP axle for LBP. I used screw in allen screw studs because it was so close to the outside edge of the axle flange (and NHRA required it).
