All full floating hypoid axles have a seal similar to this one. Not true. As I explained, the Civy Chevrolets did NOT have any seal at the end
The seal for the Jimmy Banjo axle is different from the Chevy Banjo axle Not True. As I explained, the CCKW SPLIT axle has the seal you described. The CCKW banjo and Chevrolet seals and most parts are the same. CCKWs wer made with either SPLIT or BANJO axles.
Dr. Doooosh. First off your spelling is very poor. You have left conjunctions and letters out of your typed words and sentences in your posts. This makes it difficult for anyone with any intelligence to understand the point you're trying to make. Ah, the point? You must be a Democrat. Can’t argue the point, go for insults.
Secondly, this entire web page is dedicated to, "EVERYTHING YOU ALWAYS WANTED KNOW ABOUT MILITARY VEHICLES", not civilian trucks. What I had to offer others was for the G-506 series Chevrolet WW2 Military trucks. I have the same to offer PLUS knowing which parts from the civy trucks of that era will work is a big help. Go to your auto parts store and tell them you want an inner wheel bearing seal for a 1944 Chevrolet Army truck. They will look at you like you have 2 heads. Then ask if they might have an inner wheel bearing seal for a 1946 Chevrolet truck of the same size etc. They might be able to help you with the 2nd one.
Next, you don't adjust this particular seal type by prying it out of the rear spindle lock nut and "hoping to get it even it the lock nut". The amount of seal pressure against the axle flange is adjusted by utilizing steel and paper gaskets between the hub and axle flange. And if the seal does not touch the inner flange, then what? I have had seals not touch, touch just right and a couple grind down after a short while. I have designed molded plastic parts in my past Engineering life and you have to do a parts tolerance stack-up to make sure all the parts will fit even with a worst case tolerance, all in the worst possible direction for all the parts. Draw a picture of how all the various parts affect where that seal is; inner WB, outer WB, both races, the hub, the thickness of the 2 nuts, the thickness of the lock plate, etc.
Not an after-thought by the manufacturer, but a purposefully built design from the drafting table. As I explained, the civy truck of that era does NOT have that part which means that when they got the order for these trucks, they had to devise a seal. Go and look in a Chevrolet Master Parts Catalogue and you will find that all the parts in the civy truck are the same except the axle (differ # of splines) and the side gears (same reason, different number of splines) You can even change the ring and pinion gears (in matched pairs) to the civy rations is you so desired.
I have seen a couple of parts trucks with axles welded like Ben Dover described. My 1946 civy dump truck has studs with lock washers and nuts, then a steel plate like the axle gasket then another set of lock washers, and nuts in an attempt to prevent anything from loosening. The split set up for the outer seal and tapered locks is a much better idea. You could never make a DUKW with Split axles though because of the inner WB seal and the fact that the DIKW wheels will not fit over the brake drum flange.
