9790 hubs are a different style. You need the Hat style and what you have is the normal lockup hub you see on the full sized broncos and 1/2 ton pickups etc.

You need the 29071 or the 37780 hubs. The 37780 are stronger (thicker etc) and are listed as a jeep hub.

You will also need the spindle nuts for the manual hubs as you use a different kind that you did with the auto hubs. If you got the spindle nuts with the 9790 you "should" be able to use the nuts.

Junk yard for manual hubs is normally fine. I've grabbed 3 sets from the Yard and all 3 sets work just fine.

You do need to get the spindle nuts too. New ones are $12 a side for the spicer kit # 28068X. You need one set per side or if you find good ones on the truck as you pull the hubs, grab those.

Automatic Hub Cam assembly. And I have never seen those for sale.

That is definitely a junk yard or dealer part BUT, if you buy it new, it'll be cheaper to convert to manual hubs. I pay about $50-$60 for the manual hubs at the yards around here.
