Re: D44 Spool Question
I personally think it would hold, the shafts will become the weak link most likely, but I think they will hold too.
an even cheaper option, weld it up, I did this to my Jeeps rear axle, have yet to install it,, but I used ALOT of weld and really melted it all together.
I did one 2 weeks ago for my toyota and used alot less weld, and its been holding fine, one offroad trip, and almost 2 weeks of driving around town ( terrible tire wear!)
I did it with a stick welder, it took about 1 hour to clean, about 4 hours to weld ( taking breaks to allow for cooling) and another hour or so to clean up the spatter.
about $2 worth of 1/8" 7018 rods.
varied between 110 and 150 amps DC
