I'm working on my 1921 rearend getting ready for ROCKY MTN BRAKES. In the photos the drive shaft bearing hub taken off the car ( studs showing )seems to have no replaceable bearing sleeve. The heavy bearing hub with the studs inside has a replacable sleeve. I do not know what year the heavy one is and it seems to fit. Can I use the heavy one with a new sleeve?
Next photo shows a crack in the rear housing where the stud goes. I have one crack like this on EACH half. Problem?
Also it looks like my thrust washers are one bronze and one brass.
Something I learned today, the drive shaft bearing hub studs are 13/32 diameter 16 TPI211921

Hi Norman; If you have a 1921 car I believe that you can use ether bearing carrier I have a late 1920 and it came with the carrier that has the bolts exposed, the change came somewhere between 1920 and 1921,The later carrier has the exposed blots. Brad.

Depends if his rear end has the bevel around the opening for the cupped area on the housing. And yes you are missing the sleeve in the enclosed bolt housing. Don't try cleaning the housing threaded holes with a standard tap, they are special pitched threads. If you don't have a copy I suggest ether getting the club rear end book or a copy of the service manual.

Whichever pinion bearing housing you decide to use, I would send it as a core in exchange for a Fun Projects bearing. I don't care for a lot of "upgrades" on a Model T, but this is one I'll use every time.
