Think this would fit in my 78 K5
hell, it doesn't even fit on the screen
Somebodys got to ask, so i'll bite. What is it?
so are you after a new type of rock crawing -- ROCK CRUSHING--- that thing must be from a cement mixer or something
Kress Hauler Axle these are our small ones you should see the Cat 797 axles
I think it could work
It wont fit in it, but i bet it would fit under it.
You would have to convert to airbrakes.
You'd need a big block for each axle...
Convert it to D44 disk brakes and you'd probably save about 200Lbs...
It would get a little narrower too.
What's the R&P ratio on that thing?
ot , but does anyone know what happened to the guy with the beefy "Marmon-Herrington" axle?
I wish i had a pic from when I was at Caterpiller in Peoria Illinois. The axles on the back of the big dump trucks are crazy.
Yes They are
Back when I worked at the truck transmission place, we had a huge Cat axle from some kind of haul truck.
24 inch ring gear!
The pinion looked about as big as a 5-gal can, and had to be hoisted into place. The housing looked to be bracketed for a 3-link suspension setup. Multi-disc wet brakes inboard of the planetary hubs. The whole assembly shipped out at almost 6000 lbs...
