  3. Jeeze, I seriously thought this was about redrilling rear axles to a different pattern. (I wanna change my trailer from Ford/Dodge to Chev).

    No pictures but I did my axle back in 1980 before it became popular again. Super Bells were the hot lick. I found and old dropped axle and had a buddy drill it for me.

    1/2" 3/4" 1" 3/4" 1/2" 3/4" 1" 3/4" 1/2" 3/4" etc .etc.

    Here is one that was under my 34 5 window, 19 3/4" holes + one each end for the shocks. 5 window was said to be a early drag car (New York area)in the 60s? Dave

    Drilled at home on a Harbor Freight Drill Press. Made a jig, vertical tubing guide with a flat plate welded at a 90 degree angle, plate ground to axel inner width. Vise grip plate to axel, run the drill bit through the tube. Used one hole to mount panhard bar.
    Good Luck Duane
