Hardened Axle Identification

Postby lowkey1 » Tue May 08, 2007 10:12 am

Can someone tell me how to identify the later hardened axles by the markings cast into the flange? I want to upgrade the ones I have in my MKII since I now have a stronger 1298cc engine. I have disc wheels.

The late model axles are BTA 806, and there was a factory competition axle, BTA 940. Sure would love to find a set of those!

I have Dufor AS 473 axels in my bugeye. I was told they were an aftermarket half shaft out of OZ. They get the power delivered via a 1380, datsun 5 speed and a limited slip. Haven't broke them yet and my driving is "spirited" I don't do brake stands either though;)

If there is any interest, I have a nice pair of BTA940 factory competition axles for sale...$500 + shipping.
