If everything else is good and the pattern is good you should be able to just replace the axle. Be sure to measure the shims on the housing when taking it apart and replace with the same. How did you break the axle, not enough torque on the axle nut? If that is the case be sure the other side doesn't have a crack starting to work its way through it. If you are running hydraulics you might want to look into safety hubs or clips.

It sounds like you went to Florida, bought the car and then broke the axle. If this is the case, we really should know where in Florida you are if you need assistance. Florida is a big state, as I find out every year on my way down from Minnesota.

Also, as I learned from my '36 3-window, you really have to be careful with the drivetrain in these cars if you have upgraded the engine at all.

I'm in the Fort Myers area, the engine is stock 21 head, I drove the car 28 miles when the axle went, lucky the wheel stayed on the axle, feel off when I jacked the car up, I read up on rebuilding the banjo rearend and this more than I can do while in Florida. Hoping to find some that can do or help me get back on the road.

Are you staying down here for the winter ? Did you buy the car and are driving it home , up north ?

There's a guy in the Tampa area that has done this in the past, and done it well. I'm waiting on his contact info from another Florida friend. I'll get back here with his contact info as soon as I get it. DD

I am in the panhandle now will be going to Ft Myers later. I had come with parts to put together a project, not going to get to this season. I have put them together in a fixture on table top. Have the shorter pre-war axles as well as shim/gasket assortment from previous projects. I also have a spring spreader, maybe it could be done under car, donít know how miserable that would be.

I know of several possibilities not too far from the Ft Meyers area that might be able to help you out. If you would like me to contact them on your behalf, click on my avatar, go to my contact information, and send me an email with your contact information, details on your car, what happen, etc., and maybe one of them can help you on this.
