What To Look For When Buying Used Mustang Spindles?

  1. I’m in the process of looking for a pair spindles and was wondering what I should look for to make sure it’s a good spindle. What the best way to check the bearing journals are in good condition. I know I’m planning to have the spindles magnaflux for strength. Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

    Edit: I know I'm looking for a 67 drum spindle with a C60A casting or a 70+ big bearing spindle. I wanted to know any precautions to make sure the spindle is still good. Thanks
  2. check where the bearing rides ,make sure it isnt burned or scored from a spun bearing. check up by the threads for cracks and also check the front bearing area make sure it isnt egg shaped. look for nicks whear the seal rides.
    the 70 up spindles are stronger than the earlier years.
  3. I don't know where you are located, but I have a set of 68 drum spindles off of a 289 mustang. If you are close, just come and get them.
