PostPost by: plus2-0174 » Fri Jul 10, 2020 4:26 pm

Hello from Tennessee - USA!
I am in need of a good used rear stub axle for my Plus 2.
I’m hoping there’s one on a shelf somewhere,
Thanks in advance-

What's wrong with the original one.
If the outside Bearing has worn a groove in the Drive shaft you can get it Metal Sprayed. then ground back to correct Dia no problem.

Thank you for the suggestion, I hadn’t thought of that option.
Tho I wonder how hard it might be to find a shop that even knows what ‘spraying’ is.

I’ll kook into it for sure.

Or you can get it TIG welded then ground back.
Or Hard Chromed then ground back.
