Rear Axle Actual Weight


Recommended Posts

If'n it was me & I had it to do again, I'd trade the entire tandem matched set for a factory single in the ratio you really want. "Factory" single is rated higher(23K) than half a tandem (20K), better brakes. The power divider is a saleable item for a yard. Decide what ratio you REALLY want first, go to www.roadranger.com & run the tire size etc to get the RPM & speed match you want.

Chooseopen, I took a set of tandems to Eubanks a salvage yard in Richmond Va last week. They bought them for export. They weren't mine but I towed the trailer with my Ranger. They had to weight at least 3k. Exact unknown. No tires or wheels. They want to drill a hole in the housing to make sure there isn't any grease in the housing. Didn't have to because of export. The set we put under the 1990 Pete had one of the rear end housings drilled. Didn't know that until after pouring a gallon of grease into it then noticing it coming out of the drilled hole as fast as I was pouring it in. I tapped it with a 1/4" pipe tap and it's running today hauling containers out of Norfolk. Where are you located? Look around before you junk it. Pat
