Need Hub & Drum for '98 Cutter

Need hub & drum for tag axle on 1998 34' Cutter, Chevy P30. Airstream Parts Manual listing identifies it as

Chasis Tag Axle
7400094H tag axle, 72.95"
3160705 Hub and drum, 10 x 7.25 bolt pattern

Airstream advises the part is no longer manufactured and could not be a any assit in locating one. I only need the 10 lug hub. I have the rest of the parts.

Marlind.

Sad, but true, GKN, has done something with the drum mold. They either threw it away, or have hid it.

Bottom line, is that none can be made, unless someone invests a ton of money making a new mold.

We, just today, received a complete used tag axle for a P-30 chassis, but it's rated at 3000 pounds. The worst part of it, is that it can only be sold as a complete unit, and not used for just parts.

A tough decision, but for the time being, no one wants to make the drums.

We have spent hours on the phone, trying to find a manufacturing source, but "no luck".

That drum, might be available in 8 lug, but the outer bearing must be rated at 8000 pounds.

Thanks for the early response. If new is definitely not going to be available, what are the chances of finding used one? How many years was that model produced? I've called emailed nearly every salvage yard I can locate and am having little or no luck.

You mention going to an 8 lug hub. WOuld not that mean replaceing the hubs on both sides?

As you can tell I am a novice at this (smile)!!

It will probably be a long long time, before any new drums will be available.

In the meantime, a reconditioned drum, will be very expensive.

We are running into walls at every turn, trying to find a substitute.

So far, no luck except with a complete used tag axle.
