I feel kind of dumb asking this but can you use drum brake hubs with disc brake rotors to do disc brakes on a midget

My car has Factory knockoff and disc brakes I am wanting to convert to the four lug Wheels I know a guy who has a set of the four lug drum brake hubs will they work to put the rotor on the back and run disc brakes

As memory serves, kingpins, spindles, hubs are not interchangeable from drum to disc. I don't think even the "dust tubes" will interchange.

If I understand your question you have found a set of disc wheel drum brake front hubs which would be from an early spridget and want to know if you can replace the drum brake with a disc brake rotor.. According to the Moss web site disc wheel hubs for all years whether drum or rotor use the same front hub. So you should be able to make the switch. But I am a newby to spridgets so what do I know. The more knowledge folks will chime in here on whether or not you can do this.

I believe the biggest problem is the back axle. The wire wheel one is narrower.
