So your car may or may not have the 2-piece drum/hub combo even it followed VIN P268122.

If the front drums had to be turned, the hub & drum had to be turned as an assembly.
Thanks for the input Jim, the other assembly was a two piece unit. So it seems I have a mixed bag(LOL). Have ordered new hub to go with the new drums and other brake parts. unfortunately the only original parts left will be the backing plates , spindle and steering arm.
