Hi all I need a bit of help.

I noticed a bit if a low rumble about a week or two ago and it seemed to be coming from the diff. Seeing as how I had patched up a rough one to begin with, ( no money at the time ), and it had a weepy seal it seemed to make sense.
I have had new axles and bearings fitted and that didnt fix it.
I have now found that the front wheel bearings are completely worn out on both sides.
My steering guy called me to tell me that at some time it looks as if the bearings may have spun on the spindles  and had been attacked wiith a grinder and that they really should be replaced.

PROBLEM........
not a common part down here in NZ.

Question..........
I can get my hands on some second hand parts here that are in good condition but they are from different cars.
My car is a 68 that has had 69 front disc brakes fitted.
I can get spindles from a 67 drum brake car or a 66 drum brake Chevelle. Was GM smart enough back then to use multifit parts?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers
