Torn down my first rear axle today.
It's hard to tell from the picture, but that top axle shaft looks pretty worn. It's a good thing you got those Babbitt thrust washers out of there.
Broken u joint pins are par for the course . I think if it were mine I would install new axle shafts.
Black gold, Texas tea.. ..I agree with Steve and Ted, that new axles should be in your future along with a new U-Joint. What does your ring and pinion and bearings look like?
Donnie, like usual the ring gear takes all the abuse and looks pretty beat up. I would suggest replacing them both...Also look into the "fun products" drive-shaft bearing"..its a great improvement.
Its actually Fun Projects..sorry bout that.
The pinion is usable, If you can find an ok ring gear you could pair them up and it will work OK. If you decide to replace both gears, I would be interested in the pinion. I agree about the axles. On my next re-build I want to try some new ones.
It looks like every T axle I take apart. Hardly any good parts in there
Too bad about the axle shafts. Had they not been used with the hubs running loose, they look to be otherwise nice. Chances are, your rear wheel hubs are also similarly messed up. Using new axles, but keeping hubs with worn out keyways, will soon result on worn out keyways in you new axles.
