First class job, should hold just fine. Thanks for passing along this tip. I think hub set screws that are not tightened properly causes this.

Great idea!! should work just fine. I agree on keeping the axle set screws tight.

I was reading your post from the bottom up and I did NOT even think twice about that axle looking like it had been repaired. Looks great!

Looks good Ed. Should hold up. I had a bad one on my 416 tranny I put in the 310. I had a Machinist friend weld up the bad one and  then cut a new one 90 degrees from the damaged one.
Pro Bono of course. We do each other favors. See you at the show. Will talk to you about a Briggs part.

   Totally agree...and I always add the second set screw 90 degrees to the original if it only has one.

From the 1978-79 B, C and D-Series service manual
Rear wheel hub set screw torque 28-32 Ft. Lb. or 39-45 Nm

My key ways were all cracked so I welded a #15 key in there and slotted one in at a 90 from the old one.IMG_7648.JPG.6201e76f3f9e52b99b44e1f4a5aabc0e.JPGIMG_7647.JPG.7b733ad49fea34193be7fd6400b4b652.JPG

Sorry Craig,  That transmission was sold and I don't remember where it went. :confusion-confused:  I have never had any complaints though, so I guess it is working OK.
