Default Axle tapper

Can one of you fellas tell me what the tapper specs. are on the hub end of a model A rear axle? Also what is the diameter of the rest of the axle? I don't have one that is accessible to use as a pattern but am needing to make a short stub shaft to go in the lathe. Thanks

Hello all, I'm new to the "Barn" but old with "A's". I'll do a proper introduction when I get more time.
As for the OP ? … I'm looking at a section of axle shaft, measures 1.165" dia.... or 29 and some mm in OZ
