I seem to be having an attack of oldtimers today. I don't recall where I got them. 5/16-24 x 3/4.

Of course! I wasn't thinking rear axle.

Your camera takes great macro shots! Whadja do? Set it down? I wiggle so bad...
Hmmm, your bolts are threaded further up than Dallas' bolts, have rounded ends and have a lot of wear marks/nicks on the heads and the threads on that one on the right look a bit "iffy"...
OK, different time frames/makers for the bolts...
OR
Those bolts were all turned down, threaded and parted off with lathes. Mmmmm, machines. Mmmmm. :-)
Eh hem. They didn't do much head/thread forming back then did they? I'm back to Earth now. Whew.
I got nothin'

WAIT!
I just ain't buying it. What you got up your sleeve? ONE cryptic post from you on another thread... :-)
Ruxtell?
Naughty yellow speedster with 3 to 1's?
TT?
Aeroplane?
Just ribbin' ya.
:-)

Duey, I noticed the same thing. Was wondering if it was different years also. If you notice the one bolt with rust on it in my pic is the same as Steves.
Steve??????

I removed one bolt from a ring gear and it is an exact match

I took apart a bunch of rear axles, mining for parts. I have no idea what year these are, but I expect the details vary by year and/or by supplier.

My minor special project is an experiment involving a Ford factory method. Pictures in a week or two, I hope.

That close-up of the capscrews is cropped. Here's the uncropped version.


And yes, I have to use a tripod for stuff like that or I'd blur it for sure.
