Substitute hub caps

Not having much luck finding hub caps for my '71 overlander. Has anyone found a substitute from an other vehicle that works?

If your willing to pay a little money out, my husband bought his baby moons on ebay from a airstream hub cap seller on there, I just can't recall his user ID ?

Truck stops

I have noticed that truckstops often have hubcaps that look as though they might work. Anyone tried this?

did you say hubcaps?

Are you talking the 70's one's that (aluminum) look like they came from an Olds' of the era? If so, I've got four I don't need. PM me and I'll tell you the price. NOT expensive.

I think the ones off the trade wind are baby mmon types, but I will take the 70's era ones.

wheel covers

I had two originals and no luck finding 2 more that I didn't have to rob a bank to purchase.So I let someone else rob it and buy mine on ebay.Heres a pic of mine off of a 55 chrysler windsor deluxe.What ever you buy pay attention to their depth to allow for bearing dust cover.

This place is about a 1/2 drive for me. Back in '02 I went there looking for moons. They had one that was correct for my '66. And they did have a big inventory. I end up getting 3 more moons for here.
Arizona R.V. Salvage Inc
These had come off of a Silver Streek. They worked well.

I'm not sure what rims you have but on my 67' Caravel I have the "3 nub" wheels that take the baby moon hubcaps about 10 3/16" in diameter. Bought a set of 4 on ebay for like $35 "buy it now" option. Look and fit great on my trailer. You can see them on my picture to the left.

Hi
New member, had trouble w/ AC on 2005 classic, seems the blower fan was stuck, after rolling ac worked fine. Should the fan motor be changed or would a simple squirt of oil do?
