Measurement confirmation - 1962 globetrotter

Hi guys

Looking for confirmation measurements of a 1962 single axle globetrotter - 19ft
This is what I have :

22.5% arm angle

57.875" outside to outside mounting bracket

73.75 hub face dimension

Due to exchange rate up here in Canada im having to have it built up here. The cost of the dollar plus shipping plus taxes at border are almost doubling the price unfort

If anyone can chime in the would be great! Can't wait to cut that rusty thing out

Nope can't tug the old girl anywhere until a new axle goes on.

I personally could drive no problem.

I just wish our dollar was doing better. We're only .80 cents us. So a 700.00 axle becomes 830.00 plus another 200U.S. For shipping I think to seattle? Frustrating for Canadians but that's life right!

Sorry I misread your reply
Yes for sure I can drive down to Seattle or wherever and pick up. But have to arrange that with a commercial company etc. airstream blues.

So this old girl is coming off tomorrow.
No bolts, fully welded on.
Question, am I going to have to fabricate a new plate? The old torsion axle is fully welded right around this thing.
Should I just cut it right out and bolt the new one right to the frame rail??
