I believe my Elva Courier has Triumph Herald front uprights. Does anyone have a source for front hubs and bearings for a Herald?

Are you dealing with drum or disc brakes? That makes a bit of a difference on the hubs, as drum are unique to the Herald (but not that difficult to source). If disc, it's Spitfire all the way. Regardless, though, the bearings are the same as all Spitfire and TR2-6, which makes sourcing them VERY easy!

These are 9" drums.

9"? Not Herald. Herald was 8" x 1.25". What kind of brakes -- Girling (what the Herald had) or Lockheed?

Girling (what the Herald had)
Yep--Girling. The front drums are 9 x 1.5 and the rear 8 x 1.5. I have fit Datsun 240-280 Alfin rear drums on the fronts along with Carbotech shoes, but that's another story....
