My axle is over 50 years old. It might be time to replace it.

Replacement Axle

From Ian's web site, he recommends the following axle:

Replacement Axle Specifications

Dexter #9: 2000 lb – 2200 lb with brakes

Bolt circle: 5×4.5″

Start angle:  10 deg up

Bracket type: Low Profile (if extra ground clearance needed use high profile brackets)

Bracket spacing (outside to outside frame):  48″

Hub face to Hub Face:  63″

NOTE: Double check all measurements on your axle


It appears that my axle is welded to the frame. I would need to cut the old axle off and find a new way to mount a new axle.
