While cleaning some brake drums for a rear end rebuild on a 25 Touring I found the letter C on the axle hub, What is it for?

My facetious theory is that it stands for Close. Those bolts say the wheel was too close to the brake shoes. :-)

I believe there are two possibilities. One it is an inspection stamp. You find them on many machined Model T parts or two it stands for Canadian manufactured part.

Yup, She is way to close. Iv shimmed it out just so the owner can get a ride in it then we start to take it down. He just bought the T and really wants to drive it. I told him its going to need a complete build. I just don't think I'm up to the task of a build as Iv never done one. The Melbourne area is going to get crowded with Model T's soon! I think this is number 5 in the area.

Just follow the axle book and ask the forum about anything that isn't clear. If I could do it, I expect you can too.

That's cool. Hehe, it's "C"ool.
Will, I saw this 6 this afternoon when I pulled this '15-'19 hub off an axle and apart for a possible axle gear pushing-holding jig for the '18.
What will our resident experts say about these marks. Not being smart at all. I hope you and I could get an answer.
Hehehe. Close...
Mine prob'ly referred to 6 shims to make it correct...

hub

Gosh, that ain't bad. Those 6 nuts are still full height tall nuts. :-) The 6 nuts on both sides of my Crappy-Lizzhe are worn into and they are the THIN nuts.
Ol' Crappy-Lizzhe sings to me "Please release me, let me go. For I need a rear-end rebuild too. To live this life would be a sin, rebuild me and let me live again."
And David D doesn't want to share his own internal dialog much. Sorry Will.

Please show us pics of anything out of the ordinary on that axle rebuild.

Duey,
That's because this is a FAMILY forum!!

And besides, the voice tells me to not talk about him. . . .
