    Never heard of them. Could you get a Ford axle instead?

    Carrillo looks well made Natl. Parts Depo not sure & only show 2.25 wishbone bosses, & while I agree real Ford is the preferred way to go, both priced near half the going rate of the real deal both claim to be forged.

    Why you need a 32? Model A axles dropped by a pro work just fine, same with 33-34. Most people would not know the difference

    Did Ford make a heavy model 'A" axle ?

    No, but how many people can tell the difference?

    The axle on the Carrillo site looks just like the axles that SoCal and Roadster Supply sell. Probably the same manufacturer.

    I did note the wishbone boss outward appearance differs slightly from the Ford units not sure on others mentioned. I do have an original 32 with a sight bend to the rear on the right side, good boss bores thought I would save for another project.
     
  10. "Differs slightly" that has to be the biggest understatement I have ever seen posted anywhere.

    Regarding Model A axles, what about the AA truck? Was it different from the regular axle?
     
  12. Yes, except some early AA had the car axles.

    Most of what Carillo Customs shows does look like So-Cal pieces and one even shows a So-Cal package.

    Looking at their 47 inch axle and my 47 inch So-Cal axle I don't see a lot of difference. 47 inch axle.jpg

    Fwiw Ansen axles charges 250 bucks to drop your axle and perform some minor repair. Last time I was on Okie Joes sight it was the same I think. Cores were 50 bucks for model A, 100 for 33-36 and depended on what he paid for the 32s. If you just buy a core you dont have to pay to ship your axle there.
    Im making no claim either way regarding the quality of aftermarket axles. My point is an original Ford axle dropped is pretty easy to put your hands on and not crazy expensive.

    true, model a would be fine except they look different and most hot rodders would know the difference………and like most things, if that is what he wants, why try and talk him out of it……
    Bit like saying that a ‘32 coupe looks the same as a model A , and how many people can tell the difference :eek:

    Oh yeah Rich B, those advertised (Carrillo) I'm talking about, were dropped so in that regard differ greatly from a true Ford unit hoping that gets me a passing grade. Have not researched the un-dropped units as of yet.

    I was specifically wondering if the AA truck had a heavy axle that might be an option.
    Just curious.

    I'm always amazed that you can buy a dropped original axle for quite a reasonable price, it's great that cores are still out there and not long since melted down.

    I might mention I do have model A, 34, 39, & a 60 h.p axle's trying to build the chassis as it was back in the day.

    back in the day it wasnt any easier to find a 32 axle. probably easier now with the interweb, just costs more.
