I was thinking of that earlier, but didn't know if tapping and doing studs would be safe enough as it's a crucial components! I want to try and doing it like it was stock but that might be my last resort just in case. Man I've been looking at the wrong type of cars when I look up pick and pull. There is one close to me. I'm going to try and hit it up tomorrow! Really appreciate it man! Hopefully I can find what I'm looking for tomorrow.

Thanks

Thanks, thanks to fellow members on here. I was able to locate a 72 280sel at a junkyard and pulled the axle shaft and got it for less then $50. Now I gotta get all the seals and replace it. The wheel bearing looks like it's still in good condition.

Had a question guys. After pulling the axle shaft from a 72 280sel. I notice the hub has a pin for the rotor to sit in. Compared to my stock 68 250s which doesn't have a pin and only 5 holes for the lug bolts.

Is it an add on they did for the later w108's or did I just completely grab the wrong axle? I'm didn't want to pull my axle shaft until I had all my parts but I'm thinking of pulling it tomorrow and comparing. But maybe you guys can help me with this question.

Thanks
