I just finished rebuilding my rear axle and driveshaft. On the differential housings three studs I used the castellated nuts and cotter pins. Now I'm seeing pictures where these 3 fastners ARE SAFETY WIRED. Am I wrong? I safety wired the 10 ring gear bolts.

Can you remember if you had 3 studs or 3 nut and bolts?, cotter pins are fine in the bolt ones but the studs need wire.

Norman, there are two different differential types, one has bolts, the other studs. Studs should be safety wired because they can back out, the bolts cant and only need the cotter pins. Hope this helps.

I will disassemble and safety wire. I even bought "THE MODEL T FORD FRONT AND REAR AXLES" book which doesn't talk about 2 different fasteners!

John

Think you meant to post 'lock washers' instead of cotter pins for the later style pinion housing that uses bolts.

The hex bolt heads have lock washers under each.

My bad, thought this was about pinion housing, of course you are correct on the bolt style diff. case housings that are fastened with castle nuts and cotters!

Dan, you have probably forgotten more about T's than i have actually ever learned, so you are forgiven for speed reading through this thread. :-)
