No problem — I was just inquiring if you could.Making new shafts out of 1040 material would defeat the purpose .iwould make them out of e4340 if there was some numbers.
i understand the weakest link theory but by looking at the outboard cv it can handle it the inboard on is strange because it is a weldment.i have seen one of these vehicles only the parts.the diff unit I bet is an 8.8 ford unit by the spline size.if you leave # I will call,or you can call me. ThanksNo problem — I was just inquiring if you could.
I don't want to assume your purpose. I understand the position of strengthening an item that breaks, if that is your purpose. I am not arguing, only inquiring, but if it helps to explain why I'm asking; I learned many expensive lessons in performance automotive and racing. One of them was making weak parts stronger, which then shifts breakage to the next weakest part. That next part can be anywhere in the system and is often more expensive or difficult to replace.
Not yet knowing what that next-weakest part is yet; I am perfectly happy to allow my axle shafts to be the "fuse" that blows on overload, as possibly the Marine Corps was (several features were upgraded in ITVs, but not the axles?), and why I was inquiring on the possibility of using an alloy with lower shear modulus. Again, no argument, simply that this is my purpose in asking.
