Need rear axel hub/flange

I'm about to start on narrowing the AMC20 HD I got from JYG. The hub and flange pieces seem to be friction-welded to the tubes; they have the same OD as the tubes.

The easiest way would be to cut the tubes to the correct length and weld on new parts that slip over the tube. Does anyone know of a company that sells the hub/flange parts? If I can't find them I'll probably make them, but that's a LOT of time on the lathe.

Re: Need rear axel hub/flange

I have never seen any specifically for the AMC 20.

Here are the axle ends I have found.

This outfit has ends but not for the 20.

Mark Williams has a large selection but nothing that looks like the AMC 20 end. Perhaps you could change bearing type at the same time?

Dutchman seems to have them but there webpage is such a mess it is hard to tell if they sell them independently. (look at the bottom of the pdf)

I don't Know about the bolt pattern but perhaps you could use ends off of a J-truck, wagoneer, scout or CJ,TJ dana 44. These all used Set 10 bearings so the bore should be the same. If you found one of these with larger tubes then the ends could be cut off and the tube left in and opened up to fit over your tubes. The ford 9" butt welds the ends on so that might be a good solution. Here is a link to a similar project for a car rear end. http://the-mite.com/mite22.htm And just for fun, have you thought about making it a full floater:-) http://www.bc4x4.com/tech/2002/ff9/

I discovered that both my rear shafts are rather messed up the PO used a chisel to remove the bearings which put a lot of gauges in the shafts leading to one of the bearings spinning. Moser says they want the same price for full float and semi float shafts so I think i will just full float the thing.

Good luck.
