Re: Mopar Tapoered Axle Brake Coversion Link



OK,

I am the third that says it can be done - I did it - just a bolt in swap.

1965 Coronet from a station wagon into my 1963 Plymouth Sport Fury with a 383 and Borg Warner 4-speed. 

All I did was clean it up, new bearings and seals, checked the internals and bolted it in.  I had intentions of changing the 3rd member to limited slip and a 3.23 ratio but that was several years ago and found that I like the 2.93 open for the highway.  As far as I can recall I swapped the parking brake cables, they were different length,  used the ones from my original unit.

I do have a question -

My original unit needs is a 3.23 limited slip but it was ran without fluid, probably for a long time before I got the car.  I would rebuild it but I have not found a source for tapered axles, do any of you know if they can be bought new or a source for good used ones?

Thanks
Dennis C.

Everything lines up.  Maybe if I had different tires and rims I may have and a problem but it worked for me.

Reading through all the messages it is the general consensus that swapping in 1965 axles into 1962-1964 housings is not a bolt-on operation. There are two dissenters who say it could be done. How easily is not clear.

To look at this another way, if swapping in 1965 axles into 1962-1964 housings was a simple swap, then I would assume over the nearly 50 years since these cars were built there would be numerous examples of such a swap in magazines and on webpages. That's not the case I am aware of.

What you do find  in magazines and on webpages are the swaps of later (i.e., 1965 up) b-body rear ends into 1962 - 1965 b-body cars as well as the mods to the brake drums.

Thanks,
