Re: swapping tapered axles for later flanged axles



Several people have sworn it has been done by an engineer their uncle knows, machinist friend of their mother, cousin pookie, and will always get back.  Still waiting to hear back from anyone with hard facts.  (Crickets chirping in the background included)  Not saying it cant be done, just have never read an article about it being successfully done, or anyone claiming to sell a tried and true kit to do it.  If it becomes possible to produce an inexpensive kit, it would be a top article in anyone of the MoPar oriented magazines trying to beat the competition to press with the story.  That would be big, think how many MoPars 65 and older that have tapered axles are out there, but, think how many variations there are $$.   "Just sayin."   I used a 66 axle in both of my 63 Fury's with no issues.  The 66 axle is 1 inch wider drum to drum than the 63 axle, SO, that equates out to 1/2 inch on ether side.  Is your clearance that critical?  I am running stock tires under my Sport Fury Convertible, But I am running a 11 1/2" wide tire & 9" rim under my Fury Hardtop.  You must be using a deep offset rim?  BTW, Swapping third members in a 8 3/4 actually changes nothing dimensionally. 
 
Eagerly awaiting your successful how to feedback!
Thanks!

I've swapped complete third members myself 3 times that I can remember... but as the 63 housing is the narrowest of all b bodies, I'd like to keep it....considering that the wheels and tires barely fit as is, I don't want to start all over again with a wheel and tire choice.

I will keep you all posted.
