My friend is re assembling an old Lynn Wood dragster and he needs the axles shortened. I have searched and cannot find anyone who does this, except maybe the hot rod works. He does not want to convert to new style axles, hubs, etc. so this is not an option. Is it better to cut the axle and weld it with a sleeve or find somebody with a lathe with a taper attachment. If you know of anyone who would do this we would appreciate your reply. The shortened banjo, drums, etc. are from a 48 ford.
