Carrier bearings and race numbers - Timken 44150 and 44348

Pinion bearings and races Timken 377 and 3720
Steady bearing on rear of input shaft is a Hyatt 7203 with OR305
Outer axels bearings and races (X4 each) Timken 385 and 383
Outer Axel seals I found a 55mm by 85mm rubberized seal which I used a wire wheel on to remove the outer rubber, then used Loctite Retaining compound to help set the seals (they rotated in the housings once the rubber was removed but I would have destroyed the seals had I not removed it first)

Image

Input shaft seal I don't have numbers for, I found a seal that was perfect in my stash of parts, it was possibly for a trailer axel hub or ?
Pumpkin assembly installed followed by pic with rear support plate installed

Looks like someone had fun somewhere in the past with this axel

I set the pinion to ring gear backlash to 4-5 thousandths and rolling spec on the pinion bearings to 30-35 in/lbs with similar on carrier bearings. The Dykes manual I have for reference only tells how to adjust the bearings and the wording suggests that this is to adjust worn bearings, not initial setting up. I believe I will be safe with these adjustments.




And thanks Stakebed Image

Holds 3 quarts of oil.

I'll add pics later on of the brake cable system once I get there, but that may be a bit as I want to clean the frame and paint it as well as get the engine and transmissions painted and in first.

And Chris, I'll try and get the frame a bit cleaner Image haha. That's quite the collection you posted a link to.


Rust and glory
