1926 dodge problems


Recommended Posts

I have a 1926 dodge 4 door with the disc wheels. Im trying to replace the castle nut on the end of the axel. The other side is a 7/8 inch nut but the side im working on its slightlt bigger and I cannt find a nut or a die to fit it. Has anyone ealse had this problem? Any ideas? thanks

I guess we can start with: "Did it have a nut on it before you started?" If not then it sounds like someone hammered on the end of the axle shaft and slightly mushroomed the end. One way to verify is to use a micrometer or a dial caliper and measure the outside diameter of the threads on the end and then measure about 1/2" from the end and see if there is a difference.
