    _MG_3799.JPG _MG_3800.JPG i am still waiting on red oxide primer ,because every thing i order has to take forever to get here:fuss:, so i narrowed a 69 9 inch to 66 width. its pretty easy .just jig it up in the band saw so it cuts true, and then take the bearing retainer and ckuck it up in the lathe and cut it loose. two inches come off the 69 housing each side then the bearing retainer is cut down in the lathe to 1 inch and pressed back into the axle tubes with a jig i have for aligning the ends while in the tubes. now 66 axles from a v8 will fit in the new housing but i will order new 31 spline axles from Currie .i already have a nodular carrier but i need a track lock and a new set of 350-1 gears
