    More 6 lug 14SF\'s, for real this time!

    We came across some NEW SF 14 bolt housings, some have 4.10 gears in them even! These are actually 6 luggers, not someone's miscounted 8 lug axles. They have no brakes, but are the right pattern to use existing disc kits. I don't have pricing yet, but it's looking like they'll be near $1K with brakes and perches moved. That's a little bit of a ball park estimate of course, but should be close. I'd have to look at them, you may be able to run 10/12 bolt drums on them. Chances are slim but it might work.
    Once again, any takers? We probably won't stock them.

    I am interested in a 14 bolt SF with 4.56 and disc brakes. Tell me what you would want for one.

    I would also take 4.10 if that was all that was available. Please tell us what is up, are they 4.10, 4.56, locker, non-locker, disc, drums and above all what is the width of these bad boys?

    What I know now is they are mostly 4.10, so we can get those gears, 4.56 you would have to buy but we could do a little credit I think for the 4.10 gears. They have no brakes, so discs would get the nod as the easiest thing to do. We can have them set up with a locker if you want, otherwise they're going to be open. Perches are for a IFS truck, so they have to be moved for anything else.
    Price depends a little on what you want and where you are. They're probably going to be about $500 at our door, without the brakes and with perches set up wrong. They are new, so all new bearings, etc. If we do perches and brakes, you're probably looking at $900 to $1K total. (figure about $300 for brakes and $100 in perch moving around)
    Width should be about 67", same or very close to a 6 lug front axle.
    It's a little pricey compared to a FF14 but they are 6 lug and they are new axles with discs at that price, so that's nice.
    Give me a call or drop a email if you're interested.

    Re: More 6 lug 14SF\'s, for real this time!

    I had 14 bolt S/F apart today and put the tape to it.
    Here what I came up with, hope it helps:

    Houseing:
    - 65.5" from flange to flange with the drums installed
    - 47.25 from spring bolt to spring bolt (across the axle)
    Shafts:
    - .194" (3/16 ?) C-clip, thicker than the 10-bolts.
    - 33 -spline
    - 1.376 dia at the spline.
    - 1.703 dia at the machined wheel bearing surface
    - The shafts taperd in steps, 1.376 to 1.420 to 1.650 to 1.703
    - 4.5" center hub dia.
    - 8-lugs on this one

    The truck was a 2000 C/K body, (4wd IFS) 4-doors and a short-bed. SBC and 8600 GVW. A bit of an odd option package.


    <font color=blue>Wow Factor
    A SBC at 6000 RPM, Piston speed of 60 MPH.
    3- The intake charge reaches a speed 4 X greater than the piston.
    Thats 240 MPH.

    Usually the C-clip button relief area opens up with time and miles and then the C-clip can just drop out...I had that happen with a 10 bolt.
