Well, one more slow down. Dropped the axle off at a guys place to have the ends welded on. Before I got home he had called. The slugs for his jig would not fit the bearing housings I had bought. He measured them at 3.144-3.145" ID. His slugs measure 3.149" same as the bearings for the axles. Ford's bearing housing is normally 3.150" ID. Called the company I bought them from and they said that their ends were machined to a 3.145 ID for a more press fit, unlike one's from Curry that are machined to 3.150" ID. Since the guy that is going to weld the ends on does not normally use the ends I got he really doesn't want to modify his jig slugs, which I don't blame him. So now I have to pay a machine shop to modify the ends I have since Curry ones are shorter and my axle tubes would be too short.
