Here are the axle
specs from 'back then'.
48" OS mounting bracket
0° starting angle
2000 lb. capacity
5 x 4.5 Wheel pattern
purchased axles from:
Ingersoll Machine Tool - No longer produces them
Any good welding shop can remove the axle
, and weld a new one in its place.
Should take no longer than 1 ½ hours. A really good guy can do it 45 minutes.
I expect to be able offer these types of parts in the summer.
Let me know if I can be of further help.
