    PCD 504/05/604

    has anyone ever succeeded in changing the dreaded 140 pcd to any other more common size ?
    i am thinking of getting out in the yard tomorrow and pulling a few things apart and seeing what might and might not be possible but i thought i might get a thread going on the subject to see what others might have come up with
    i remember looking quite a few years ago at trying a similar task but as age dictates my memory isn't as good as what it could be so i can't remember what i came up with
    i am sure it will come back to me once i have a bit of a play around

    Sean,

    Changing the 504/505/604 stud pattern to one of the common Japanese patterns has been done quite a few times in Indonesia. Check out the Indonesian Pug club website and their gallery section at:

    Dave,
    have heard of or seen anyone doing that type of thing in this country ?
    if so do you how much trouble if any did they have ?
    from what i can work out i can't see it as bieng all that hard to do
    the rears on the pugs looks really simple seeing as though the plate that the studs are in is a separate part altogether
    just think if i didn't get out of early pugs a few years ago i probably would have done all this to a car by now
    i just didn't think back then that i was going to get another early pug untill the other 1/2 fell in love with a 604
    the variety of wheels that are available for smaller PCD's is so great i can't see why no one has done anything about this as yet
    i don't know if there is a legal issue at all about it seeing as you are changing the manufacturers specs on the car in a fairly major way and a little machine work maybe to be done

    Sean,

    I haven't heard about anyone in Australia doing the stud conversion. I think I've read somewhere that redrilling hubs is illegal, but having said that my uncle's PRB clubman has redrilled Cortina hubs to match the Corolla stud pattern of the rear axle.
