Re: 49 Axle shaft

Ok, I see where I goofed as far as chassis and body. So the seal is the same. Measuring it would be my next step. I have changed pinion seals before and have done just what Owen states by counting turns and it has worked well. As far as the ratio, multiplying it by two would make it a 3.9, which is good for what I want to do, but what I don't understand is why multiply by two.

If it won't move, get a bigger wrench.
If it breaks, it needed fixing anyway.

Hi again guys. I need a little more assistance with my axle. I have purchased a complete rear axle for my car (2301, 1949) out a "48 to get an axle shaft as I have an issue with one of mine. I also would like to use the carrier assembly as it is out of a non overdrive car, and I have overdrive. It needs a new pinion seal. I've found the original number for the pinion seal (329655) for my car shown in the parts book at 12.012. I am unable to find anything for 2292 which is what car the axle came out of ( vin # for the car is 2292 9967). It shows the same seal for 2201 - 02 - 11 - 32 and the last number looks like 40. Could someone help me identify/ point me in the direction that I need to look to find a number that I can cross in to a current number to get the seal for the 22 series axle? Something else that I have tried to determine is the ratio of the 48 gear set. As far as I see, at 12.005, the tallest ratio is 3.9 for 22nd series, which, I was informed would likely be for a non overdrive car. I turned the pinion 2 full revs and the left drum (right stayed still) rotated one full turn plus about one inch past the starting mark. There's no way that it's a 2:1 ratio. What have I missed/ screwed up to get that kind of a count? Thanks to all who respond!

That's a good idea! I have the slide hammer already, I was just going to make an adapter to fit it and the axle. I'll have to try that.

You know, I looked for that and could not find it. Thanks again Howard for all of your valuable input. 2301 chassis, now I'm good to go.

Does anyone happen to know what the thread in on the end of the axle for the drum nut? I need to make a puller to remove the axle. Unfortunately my car is not accessible at present time to check what it is. Thanks for the help.

I was in my 49 Deluxe, 288 with OD, following 3 cars and a truck with a small mini excavator on a trailer. They were all going about 40 mph and no one would pass the truck. Got a chance to go, so I pulled out and steadily pushed the pedal down. When I pulled back in, indicated was 80. I think actual was more like 70 going by what the GPS showed when running around town. Engine pulled good and steady all the way and didn't complain a bit.

I found this athttps://www.packardinfo.com/xoops/html/downloads/SC/SC-VOL23NO5.pdf

It shows both generators for the 2301 car, which is what I have. Now that it has been determined that I have a 12 volt genny, I need to get the correct one. My starter and distributor are also Autolite.
