haven't done much on Sassy lately but did fix the axle problem, with a new one!
Like I stated elsewhere, I think the bearing dried out and heated the inner race enough to sieze the bearing to the housing and break the press on the axle. It then spun on the axle removing enough material from the press area to ruin the axle. I did a backyard fix on it that lasted about 500 miles (a weekend to my brothers place in Alberta). SO,, new axle,,, OF COURSE I COULDN"T JUST GET A LONG SPLINE AND CUT IT TO LENGTH!!! for 3 reasons, it was too short at 22.75 inches,, 31 spline, small bearing so I ordered it from these guys,, nice piece but with the way the Canadian dollar is right now,, I have almost $500 in that one axle and it's just a street axle, nothing fancy,, BOO WHO IS ME ,,, LOL

It's only 300 US but our dollar is down about 40% from yours so add 200 CA!

GOOD LUCK , ROY.

I have Moser 31 splines in my car. Haven't had any problems as of this time. I'm going to be pulling the wheels and get new slicks this winter, so maybe I should yank the axles and look for any possible issues before something bad happens.

Fred I reread your postings of the adventures with Sassy.
I just love that picture of your little dog riding shotgun.
I have a little Shepard that goes everywhere with me.
Good stuff you got here.
