Ive got my 67 now gutted. Way better to be bare. Replacing all subfloor this week.
I have a question about axle measurements. From another member who has a 65 she used the following measurements to order her dexter axle.
Dexter "Torflex Axle"
#10 torsion axle
3000lb. cambered (slightly curved)
74.5" Hub face to Hub face.
57.7/8" Outside bracket to Outside bracket.
Reverse orientation, side mount, low profile, brackets.
22.5 degrees down, trailing arm.
Grease bearings (not EZ-lube or oil)
5 lugs on 4.5" centers.
Would this work on a 67?
Are all the axles on these caravels the same?
How is the 3000 lb axle? vs. 3200 or 3500.
Also, the estimate for the dexter axle is $599, complete with brakes. plus labor $75 per hour. He says it should be an easy replacement, maybe 1-2 hrs. How are these prices?
