Brake Hub for '68 AS Caravel Needed

I need a brake hub for my '68 AS Caravel, 5 over 4.5, 10" ID for original dura-torque axle. My hub sheared apart separating the lug and bearing area from the brake drum. Please help. Or if anyone knows where to find a replacement compatible for this year. I have struck out locally here in Reno, NV. My guys say no aftermarket parts match bearing/race dimensions for the spindle. The bearings are still in great shape and I am able to get a new grease seal at Napa. I am trying to avoid mounting a new axle and I had a trip planned for mid October to Silver Lake (June Lake Loop, CA). Aspens are stunning that time of year and the fishing is pretty good too. New member but 3 year reader of this great forum. Hoped I never had to post a question but now the trailer is on blocks in the driveway. Trailer still rolls when put together but would have to disable electric brakes. Wife says NO to that idea. Thanks for all the help in the past and looking forward to camping soon.
