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.
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.
