Does anybody know how to straighten a bent rear axle? Iím in the process of restoring this 1911 rear axle to put on my 11T. It almost looks like somebody tried to pick the car up with the axle when the car was upside down.
you will have to put the bent housing in a lathe, then use a bull nose center in the tail stock, then heat it where it is bent while the lathe is running bring the center in to the bearing hole this will bring it back to center, that is how i do it. charley

I sent my bent housings to The Tin Shed out in California. Larry did a great job. Loco Larry's number is 562-941-6131. Hope he is still in business.
