Look ! No 60s.
look no pic of k5 on axles?
look you can't even tell what is under it...
What ? I said they have axles from Volvo Sugga TP21, used by the Swedish Military in the 50s and 60s. Vacuum lockers, high pinions, Rzeppa front axleshafts and 2,5 ton strength.
Okay? In the pictures you cant see anything
You want pictures, Mister ?
There we go now we can see what you are trying to show us.
Youre welcome, Sir. Now Ill go and Zzzz..
They look pretty stout. Any idea what gearing they came with and if gears are readily available for them? Also how much do they go for (are you on Euros now?).
is the front missing the tie rod?
If you look close its high steer. The tierod is just above the springs
Look in this one
edit:Never mind, Holy crap are those pics huge
More info please!
This is a Volvo TP21 "Sugga" (means "hog" in english).
It´s a really cool old military vehicle. Very good offroad but consumes an awful lot of gas
Alot of European countries went with selectable lockers for their military vehicles starting in the 1950's. I wonder why Uncle Sam didn't?
What is the price on a set of axles like that? The Volvo C303's and Unimog axles are nice, but don't go for cheap. The Sugga axles would be much easier to swap onto a leaf spring vehicle also, since they are not of the portal design.
So what are the specs on these axles? How thick are the shafts, how many splines, etc.......
60's might be the norm, but you cant beat the bang for the buck.
Ratio is 5.14:1, the shafts is ~ 1.4 inch thick, not that many splines, but Im pretty sure the shafts are forged. The Suggas are rare, but you can find the same axles under other Volvos, 6x6s for instance..
Found this page in english with some specs.
These cars are really cool. I know of a couple "Suggas" with chevy engines and 40"-44" tires here in Sweden.
Hehe. Du hjelper dem for mye Johan, de må da klare og gjøre litt forskning selv. One of the Suggas on that page belonged to a friend of me, BTW..
