I have noticed when trucks are hauled this way the axles are pulled on the wheels on the ground on the trucks being hauled,one would think that would burn up the bearings and would think it would be easier to remove the drive shaft.

Dupont Car Camper
1917 Ester Alaska
Mansfield & Bower Sanford Maine early 60's
What the heck is that scoop?
Art Malone at Sanford Maine
I THINK this is their winning Junior Stocker
The bearings are dual, full floating, oil bath type. The axle does not have an attached bearing. With axles pulled, the hubs rotate and support the weight only. Any connection to the rest of the drive line has been removed. They're easily removed. Probably should have a dust cover over the opening though.
This rig was used to deliver mail in the 40's to rural customers around my hometown of Glendive, Montana.
Spare tire? I don't need no spare tie. I'm hoping I do get a flat tire
WOW!-----That sure brings back memories!---Thurston's did a bunch of custom tops!-----When I was at Inglewood Hi from 1946--1950.
Maybe we should do a 5 rotation to check for any flat ones
