    Hi
    Your problem is the internal bearing spacer - although the 1" bearing fits you need to machine the hub to fit the larger spacer inside.
    This would leave dangerously little material and I would not do it...

    Cool - I've never done it but read horror stories of collapsed hubs after machining. There might be some differences thru' the years, but if the 1" (1.25" OD) spacer fits w/o machining you should be good to go...
