Hello can anyone tell me where to purchase a keyed crank hub? It has to be for a 1996 impala ss,checked pioneer but cant find one in stock only for 95s,and ebay has some but they look to long? Thank you.
Hey thanks for the reply 95wagon, but im really wanting something i can order or pickup somewhere, i dont have time to get one machined , i might just slap the old hub in and hope it stays in place if its going to be a hassle looking for one ,was really wanting a pioneer one but seems like they don't carry it anymore. 😤A 96 hub is .093 shorter than the 94-95 to allow for the reluctor.
If you cant find a 96, you could machine a 94-95.
Orrrrrr, in a pinch shim the accessory bracket ahead.
Goes without saying the B body hubs for a given year are longer than F or Y
New CNC crankshaft hub with key and adapter spacer. This high performance hub gets mounted on LT1 engines between crankshaft and harmonic balancer. 94-96 LT1 Impala SS. Keying prevents crankshaft slippage.www.ebay.com

The seller I linked is none other than TorqueHead.
Think they would have their #%^$ together.
The 94-95 hub is the longest there is, the 96 is only .010 shorter ( .093 but not nitpicking)
Damper sellers like ATI , Fluidampr, and the hubs TorqueHead sells, are 96 dimension and include a shim washer to use if you are putting on a 94-95.
Contact TorqueHead directly if you have concerns.
Yes , the keyway is correct.
Your car stock will have no key in the front position, and the special " clipped" LT1 and year specific rear key.
The correct set up when using a keyed hub is 2 full length keys .
Lots of people, if the engine is together, skip the change of the rear.
Maybe OK if NA and you just want the added insurance.
If there is a blower involved, you MUST have both full length keys.
Another option for others...
