1940 3/4 t axles
 

There is 1940 rear and front axle for sale no rims locally. It has wide 5 drums so I wonder if it is early.
Is there anything on those to save or would fit a 1/2 ton?
Thanks

old stock car racers used the front hubs/wheels on race cars on the right front for strength. they will fit a 1/2 ton spindle

The snouts from that rear end are cut off to be used with both the right front spindle and both sides of a car rear end to give full floating axles. The hubs would then fit on those snouts. These were highly sought after items for dirt track cars.

To answer the original question, the front hubs and all four backing plates will work on a cor or 1/2 ton.

It is worth saving. Lots of people are building "dirt track" old cars. They need the 3/4T hubs, diff carrier, and axles. If they are using a quick change center section, they actually need 2 left side axle housings plus the qc center. If they cut the ends off of the axle housings to use on stock Ford front spindles, they will not bolt on directly; the bolt patterns are different. The backing plates look like passenger car but the bolt pattern is larger. Shoes are the same, the grease baffles are different (larger bolt pattern).
