Ford Banjo axle help!

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Chris, Dec 29, 2006.

  1. Ok, heres the deal. I have a Ford banjo rear end that I cannot identify. It is a later juice brake rearend. The bells are roughly 24 1/5 inches long like a 40 style, but the torque tube is pretty long, with short radious rods, like a 46-48. The wierd thing is, the torque tube has a sleve in the center, like they lengenthed it, only it's factory. How do I know this? The long continuous weld all the way up the torque tube goes over this sleeve. The other really odd thing is, there is no slip joint on the drivline, meaning that the driveline and pinion gear are one unit, you cannot seperate them, like a model A. This is defenetly a later rear end, but this is very puzzeling to me. Can anyone help me identify what this is out of?

    yeah the lincolns look ALOT different then the fords
    i'd say mercury too as i think most of them had the pinion/driveshaft as one piece
