  5. Bob, The steel section I was refering to (31-34) is the center section of the rear axle housing . Im sure you already now that owning several 1932 Franklins. I wasnt aware of a change in the material these housings were made of. My 32 convertible needed that piece to be remade as it was in poor condition . I had one made out of aluminum, and installed a modern seal. If I have a steel one Ill send it other wise it will be pot metal. Mike

  11. Steve , The wire wheel hub/drums also have the the threaded area where the screw on puller can be screwed on. I had a drum I could not get off. And Ive taken off most likely over 100 of them on various makes over the years. I backed the nut off about three turns and drove the car about 3 miles and it broke free. Be carefull using any puller to leave the nut on to preserve the end of the axles threads. Mike
