Is this cast or steel?
Hi zuk people [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I'm in the process of making a trailer for my skidoo and am using a junk'd front end of a zuk for my wheels. I was think'n that I'd weld the spindle part onto the frame, but I think it might be cast iron. To give you a better idea of what I'm talk'n about....looking at a front axle you can see where the hub moves to allow steering (it is mounted on a ball shape thing...) we took all of that apart, took the drive axle out and are now left with the hub witch is still bolted (4 of em) onto the flange that mounts the hub to the rest of the axel. I'm wondering if this is cast or not. It looks like it, but it would be a brittle part to put here would it not? So If anyone can let me know, it'd be great.
back to the drawing boards for now....[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]
