Re: Differences in Narrowtrac D30 outers?
I just measured my spare set, the flange measured 3.345 inches. I also have drum brakes. I couldn't get my calipers into the knuckle to measure, but the existing axles had a flange that looked to be the same diameter, basically the diameter is almost the same as the width of the yoke. Last time I changed a u-joint, I remeber the flange is almost the same size as the hole in the knuckle.

I think they all should have it. Are you sure it hasn't broken off some of them. The flange is intended to protect the spindle seal.
