  15. 1466 Front Axle

    ace, I will do the best I can ,most of the time the hole for the ball is worn out so I take 1/2 in x4x4 plate drill a 3/4 hole in the plate just off center and press the ball through the plate,now on the front of the yoke where the nut went I taper it so the lock wedge fits the taper(the wedge is 3/4 what is used to lock the axle to hub on big trucks)I use 3/4 lock nut on the ball ,after the plate the ball could be little longer on threads but have not had any get loose ,grind the backside of the yoke flat to fit plate,tighten nut and drive ball and plate till tight then weld plate to yoke ,paint it and hard to notice not stock ,I hope this explains better ,I have got to figure out how to send pictures!
