campy hub conversion

Is it possible to convert an early 90 campy hub8 speed to a 10 speed?
I was trying to replace the sprockets but the 10 speed sprockets have smaller hole ten the 8 speed / the olde hub is bigger then the new one

can i replace the mechanism, will a new one will fit into the old hub?

The answer is 'probably'.

What model hub are you trying to upgrade, and what axle does it have?

I have done Chorus hubs by putting ab inexpensive Mirage 9 speed freehubs on them. You will need some mechanical skill, but it's not all that difficult.
