I have a 1962 FJ40 front axle that's yours if you want it. It would be the same as the one on the 1965. It's the pre-birfield axle - no CV joint on the axle shaft, just a big ball at the end of the axle tube on which the knuckle pivots.
Note that you can't do the minitruck disc-brake conversion on the older axles.
If you want the early-60s axle, let me know and we can work something out. I don't know where Denair is, but I'm in Oakland.
I have two of these old-style front axle assemblies that I can let go for peanuts or <IMG SRC="smilies/beer.gif" border="0"> plus shipping from Central Oregon. Both are complete and in excellent condition (no rust). They are from FJ45s -- one is a '65 and the other a '67.
mountain bound and morgan haven't replied in a while so if your offer is open to anyone I sure could use your front axle. I do believe it is a complete bolt on replacement. If it is complete and in working order, I'll come and pick it up.
