Anyone know what the stock axle shaft length for a 64 is? Picked up a used 3rd member with gears and a 31 spline Detroit locker.

Thanks for any help.

...whew...

The 64 could have one of four axle housings. Is there an I.D. Tag on your rear?

Odds are your axles are 28 spline, not 31. You may be able to have the 28s re-splined to 31, if not you have 2 choices. Change the axles or change the rear end gears.

I don't like my locker, the chirping around corners bugs me. If I ever do it again I will go with a limited slip.

No doubt the splines are 28. I'm looking to buy a set of strange 31's and was just wondering if anyone knew the length of each stock axle. Thanks

FYI, re splining an axle would defeat the purpose, more spline, thicker axle, more strength.

Keep in mind the 2 axles will be different lengths, one shorter than the other.

This is from my 1960-64 Ford MPC :

1964 Tag #'s WBT & WBV: R/H 32 1/4" ; L/H 27 15/16" - 28 spline​
all others : R/H 32 13/64"; L/H 27 27/32" - 28 spline​


Hope that helps :) Norm
