scared the sh!!t out of me but got the job donenice..cool little jig you set up for cuttin the tube on the lathe
I haven't done a final measurement but it should be 63" its 4 " wider than stock and thats all in the in the knuckles and hubs the distance from the inner c to the wms is 2 inches more than on the 44Nice. What did you end up getting the overall width down to?
I kept washing it after every trail ride but then I kept waiting on getting inner axles back from resplining and last trail ride it was to dang cold to wash itGive me heads up next before you start and I will send you some quarters for the carwash.
BTW looking good.
yep there is a grease fitting to keep it packed fullDid you put a grease fitting or anything on that rotator? Sweet axle!
yep they are ford 44 bracket bored out to fit 60 spindles and redrilled to match bolt pattern then flipped around to oppiside side with 5/16 spacer to make them fit up the rotors/hubs ( thanks highonda) correctlyfordnut said:awsome work are those ford dana 44 caliper brackets ?
bought used inner and outer knuckles with about 6" of tube from Highonda here on pirate and also got used long side axles from him to have cut down to my custom lenght the ended up building diff to use stock chevy short side axle so only long side is customBlown said:SaWeeeat! I am looking for help with one. I don't have the equipment. Curious where you got the outers, knuck out? Who did you order axles from? I didn't see a pic of the jig used as you welded the tubes?
I have bought a used sunray for the outers and 35 spline N-case detroit lockin' frickin' drop out. Now I need to rework the housing to fool-size and get new axles. I was lookin' at Currie for the axles and have three local sources to get help reworking the housing.
I like that you went all the way with shaving and back errr front brace!
the c rotates on the shaftMpossum said:I'll give you another "at-a-boy" on a job well done. How does your wrist setup work? Does the C mount pivot on the axle tube? You didn't cut the axle housing like the WAH setup BC Bronco sells?
