63 rear axle_what about on a 65 Monaco
"Jerry L Pullin Jr" <jerrypullinjr@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>: Apr 20 03:41PM -0500

Is my problem similar to yours regarding axle lengths being different on a 65 Monaco? I tried to put 275/60/15 (Mickey Thompson) 8.5 AR rims on it. I had to jack the car really high to get one side up ...more
furyus63@xxxxxxxxxxx: Apr 21 12:21AM

No Jerry your problem is not the same. After 1964 thrust blocks became universal for both non/SG & SG units. The drum to drum width of your '65 Monaco should be 61 3/4". ...more

63 rear axle
Gary Futrell <gary.futrell@xxxxxxxxx>: Apr 20 12:51PM -0500

I've been reading the 62-65 website and old related group threads on the
early B axles. I've removed my rear axle on my 63 Sport Fury and replaced
the rear springs. I had planned to use an A body ...more

Find a 65 to 67 B body rear, drum to drum. These are the narrowest and you find about 1” per side difference (at least I did on my 64)

This is what I did on both my '63 Fury & '63 Sport Fury. Both had 741 non/SG units. I replaced both units with 742 SG units. To do this 1/16" was removed from the end of each axle, ...more

Good info. Bob. I am using a 1966 Charger drum to drum rear on my Plymouth and it is at least 2” narrower than my OEM rearend.

So you ground off a 1/16 inch on each axle, not machined, right, Nick ?
What I've got for measurements for each axle are; flange to flange, B body:
62-63 - 53 1/4 inches ; 65-67 - 54 1/4 inches; ...more

I have a 489 from a '70 GTX and it was about 1" narrower back plate to back
furyus63@xxxxxxxxxxx: Apr 21 12:10AM

Yes, ground off 1/16". This was marked off on each end, and on a large shop grinder with a fresh grinding stone for hard metal. The grinder had a large adjustable steady rest which was key to making ...more

"Gary Pavlovich" <glpavlovich@xxxxxxx>: Apr 19 08:52PM -0700

A Max Wedge person could tell me but it if they are undamaged, complete, and in good shape...that sounds reasonable to me.

if your a purist maybe, but I would not call them a bargain, your getting

Yes, I agree that from a replacement standpoint they would not be a bargain. I was probably thinking nostalgic/original and if I had a genuine Max Wedge I would want the OEM heads. Wish I had ...more

I am changing the subject to revise the thread. We all probably have our young/dumb (I'll add "flat broke") stories that made us miss a Mopar deal.

WOW Gary! I think the 1958 "300" is a timeless classic...a lot of "what
ifs" could set us in good stead right now.

I had the chance to buy a running 392 Hemi out of a late 50's Imperial in @
1969 for $20.00. Dumbass!!
