    1991 Knuckles on 1986 - Or preferably: Wheel bearing/captive hub/rotor tips?

    My mechanic friend doesn't have a hydraulic press or any speciality gear to handle the captive rotor hubs up front on my 1986 Mazda 323. I noticed in my area there's a $200 parts car, but it's a 1991. Will I run into any difficulties grabbing the hubs off of that one, getting them done by a capable shop, and slapping them on my car? Debating grabbing the five speed transmission and all that jazz off of it too, which presumably won't cause any issues. Thoughts/advice? If there's an easier tool I can buy or fabricate to get the job done cheaply, I'm open to that as well!

    Whole nuther ball game there the 91 is a BG while yours is a BF. Not a bolt on affair and the 91 is 4x100. Go to Harbor freight and buy the 12 ton press and do them yourself. A necessary tool for a BF owner anyway. Doing it just once more than pays for the press as opposed to one visit to the shop.

    Cheers, lads. Appreciate it... wasn't sure how compatible they would be. Presses are a little bit pricey north of the border, but there might be one at the shared work center nearby I could use.
