    Okay, I'm slowly cleaning up the yard since my dad is gone... so I am keeping certain things, and selling others. I was wondering what kind of axle this is so I can find out if it is any use to me. Here are a few pics to help /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    There you go. I'm pretty sure it's out of a ford because of the shock mounts /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Re: Identify this axle!!

    I know there is better axles out there, but this is free, and would do for me until I can find a 14bff. This would hold up with 35" tires right? Should I or should I not? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Yes it should hold up with 35's no problem at all, I'd run it if I was on a budget and it was lying in my yard free, especially if it had the right gears. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: Identify this axle!!

    In another post someone said that axle was on the wrong side is this true? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif


    I have no clue what gears they are because like I said it was just in my back yard, If I were to pull the cover, how do I find out the gears? Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: Identify this axle!!

    A semi float axle has a c clip located inside the diff on the end of the axle shaft to secure the shaft from coming out. A full float axle has bolts securing the axle from the outside, you dont have to remove the diff cover to remove the axle shaft. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: Identify this axle!!

    we are looking at the bottom as far as I can tell. Its just sitting upside down, nothing to worry about. Someone was probably being stupid and thought its a front axle even though its clearly in the center.

    Steve to check the gear ratio remove the diff cover, count the ring gear teeth and also the pinion gear teeth. Divide the numbers and you get your ratio....for example 41 teeth on the ring gear and 10 teeth on the pinion gear would be 4.10 /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: Identify this axle!!

    On the 60 i found, i pulled the cover and there were a series of numbers on the ring gear. That will probably tell you but i am not for sure.
