Default 1932 HEAVY front axle

Yes, I know that all came that way, but I got your attention. The HAMB has been down for days and I need some advice. I bought a 1932 front end drum to drum and hope to sell off everything and keep the I beam. It looks like a wet noodle, is there someone out there that can straighten it and check all four holes for proper alignment? Thanks. Bob

Bob,
You might try Okie Joe Casto in Ponca City, OK. He does dropped axles and I'm sure can straighten and resize/align the kingpin bores on a stock axle. He does nice work. I have one of his dropped axles on my AV8. You can take a look at it tomorrow at the Cider Mill.

You might try Kevin in NJ. That is his screen name here, here's a link to his tech tip page on axles.

A little closer to home; maybe he can help.

Second for Joe Casto. He's really good. My deuce has an axle that he aligned (stock height heavy beam) and it drives nice with bias tires.

I use Greg Haynes. Check out his web site at ansondroppedaxels.com. He has done two for me & I have another that I will be sending him. He has jigs to straighten, & repair king pin holes, as well as drop them if you would like. He does excellent work. His phone # is (503)-333-4043. Bill

Thank you! I just had a 20-30 minute long conversation with Joe, he'll be blueprinting my axle and fitting the spindles/king pins so I have a perfect caster/camber setup. Having done 300+ axles I think he knows what he's doing. Bob

Joe did a nice job on my axle. Dropped the axle and dropped the steering arms.
