Re: Would like to get rid of the 1964 tapered axle rear end



Good reminder, MO, and easy to forget, even after you've (...well, I've...) done it a few times!  And when I heard the BANG, I thought "...oh, no, not AGAIN!)

Good how to, but they did not mention one thing. When you are useing the hub puller, put the large castle nut on backwards or use a soft metal block between the tip of the puller threaded shaft and the end of the axle.  put the backwards castle nut on till it is flush with the axle end.  This is to keep the threads on the end of the axle from getting deformed.  Also these hubs can come of with a BANG and the nut keeps the hub and drum from flyingoff and hitting you............................MO

Do you actually have a real reason for wanting to change the rear end?

 

It seems that your concern is that it's harder to maintain your brakes, but this can be overcome without tossing out your tapered axles. It's a bit of work, but it can make things better in the future without the complications of changing the rear end.

 

First you have to grind off the greater part of your wheel lugs, then drill into them so they will collapse when you hammer the remaining bit through the flange, you do need to avoid damaging the holes in the flange. Drums, new ones from NAPA, are not expensive, get some new standard lugs out of a pair of later model axles. 'Later model' might include those out of a whole bunch of vehicles, like Dakotas, other pickups or post-'65 sedans. If you want to retain left hand threads you need to get these from pre-74 models IIRC.

 

The next point I'd like to raise is that I believe (though I don't remember where I got the information, probably John Kunkel on Moparchat) the '64 rear end is wider drum to drum than other B-body axles prior to 1970.

 

And then there's the issue of your centre's spacer block being a different size, so if you went to put your pumpkin into a later housing you will run into trouble adjusting the axle clearances.
