It's an absolutely beautiful axle you have built there, Andrew. Really top notch. Good job!

Show us a pic of the jig you made for it. I forgot to ask for a peek when I was at your place.

So thats a new flange pressed onto the tube and welded in place?
I was working on an adapter to bolt the spindle to the existing flange but I was going to end up with extra width that way. I like this idea better.

Whatcha gonna do for a parking brake?

You could eat a ham sandwich off that thing it is so clean!:)

Looks like it turned out really well.

Are you going to run a transfercase e-brake?

Where do you get the drive flanges and how much are they?

Does this mean that I can get my jig back?:)

Actually Chris, would it be okay if I borrowed it to put mine together??? :D

Axle looks good, Andrew. Mine's gonna look pretty much identical, except I'll be skipping the shave job.

2 questions:
1) What width did you end up deciding on, and why?
2) What caliper brackets are those? They don't look like the factory GM D44 ones...?

Dan.

the flanges are butt welded on, i chose not to press fit them because it would be impossible to use a jig and a press. if i were to press them on there is a chance that they would not run true with the carrier bearings.
for a e-brake i am going to make a t-case e-brake.

chris.

the backing plates are off a waggy and i simply removed the little tin dust shield.

chris s.

the drive flanges are from warn and they fit into a d44 hub but accept a 30 spline d60 outer axle. they are about 160/pr from the states.

peterbuilt.

the axles are dutchmans, the spindles are chev and the rotors are ford.

How long do you figure that you will need to use it?

I have a new project coming up that I will need it for. I am going to start it in the next week or so but probably won't need the jig until mid August.

I hate to put a schedule on your project, but I am eager to get started.
