I'm still mining rear axles for usable parts, and I'm finding a few unusual items. Here's the latest.
Steve, just wondering what you do with the non-usable parts. I finally sold mine for scrap since the prices started going up several years ago.
Steve I could use a pair of rear radius rods for a 22 if you want to sell a pair. Thanks James
That should allow for better lubrication.
Hard to tell from the picture but what are those? Some kind of notch in the thrust washer that is supposed to retain the washer in place of the pins?
Looks like lugs machined into the housing to fit the notches - just can't tell without an oblique shot.
This is the thrust plate that goes between the thrust washer and the housing. It's been cut, with the cuts bent to make tabs which fit on opposite sides of the tube. I'd shoot a picture to show that, but my camera's gone haywire.
John, since non-usable is in the eye of the beholder, I expect eventually I'll take all the parts I think are junk to Chickasha and have a $1 table.
$1 per each piece? Yes please! But i live so far away..
I'll give you $1 for the table (maybe even $2 if it's in nice shape). :-)
Steve, I guess the tabs (didn't realize they were bent towards the wheel side) would catch on the webbing on the pumpkin and that would keep them from rotating ?
If so, I guess it was just a shadetree mechanics way of not having to fool with the pins or setting the pin depth correctly. Or .... maybe he just lost em'!
Looks neatly done. Perhaps was an aftermarket thrust plate advertised as not needing those pesky pins that wear off!
