Default Re: Welding a bead on the stub axle

I think the 'stub axles' that you are referring to are called Spindle Assemblies by Ford.

While I do not recall the post you are referencing, I don't think what you are suggesting is prudent.

Instead, the way I would suggest the repair be made is mount the existing Spindle Bolts (King Pins) into a lathe and use a Tool Post grinder to true them until they are round. Then fabricate a new bushing for the spindle and press it in. Next bore and finish hone the bushing to a size of about 0.001" over the new size of the Spindle Bolt. This allows you to have a good/safe repair that will last a long time.
