    Hey what's the difference between Anglia mount and a strange or lamb mount. Do they make different wheels per mount? Can you just change a bearing out and run those rims on any mount. American racing refuses to answer that question. Thanks jay

    Check out THIS previous topic.

    Also, the Strange bearings are farther apart by around 7/16".

    The Lamb spindle uses a bigger ID bearing than the Anglia so it uses different bearings and inner seal. You can buy the Anglia spindle mount wheels and then buy the bearings and seals from Lamb if you have Lamb spindles and you'll be good to go.

    also, if you look in their catalog, they do have a kit for each type of spindle, but you have to be extremely carefull puting the kit in to have it adjusted correctly. they dont give instructions or any help on the install. if you call and order direct, they can put the races and such in for you, but its not a off the shelf part number wheel they sell then. so now there are anglia, strange, strange large,and lamb spindles. lamb does sell the bearing kits, and they come with their numbers etched over the oe number with mods done. confused yet? if not talk to the people at the wheel manufacturer, they have absolutely no clue what they are selling, or what bearings to use. its sad.
