48 ford car rear axle (banjo) questions.

i have a 48 ford car frame with the banjo enclosed drive shaft rear axle. i plan I'm cutting this down into a bobbed t truck with a falcon strait six, and want to retain the original axle, i have the banjo center form a ford truck with the u joint axle which I'm planing on swapping in.

question one. after i pulled the axle tube i find the internal shaft linked together with a 4-5 inch long collar with what looks like 2 pins, or possibly four pins, i assume these are locking on a ring on the end of the splines, or are they clean through? i kinda doubt the latter since one side is sorta sticking out. anyway how do i go about removing this collar? this is one of the first times I'm reusing a stock axle.

question two. when i swap in the truck banjo, does anything need to be modified?

question three. is there any way i can beef the stock setup some, as in better diff IE locker. or stronger shafts, possibly the truck ones?

question four. I'm missing the stock backing plate for the drum brakes, can i use truck brakes?

thanks guys!

seems like most guys rip them out ,,and put them on a boat to china,,but since you'r gonna keep it,,check at some old ford car sites...they should have a tear-down on what you are looking for..
and i think the pins are used for "stops".. shaft -diff. shaft from moving down.. should be held in by clips..
....not sure tho,,, too much jack daniels ,,and too many left handed twists ,,back then in the "old days.... lol...

ground off the one that was sticking out, tapped it right out. took me less than 15 min to gut the whole axle. and it looks to be in great shape. now its on to finding the remaining parts i need to rebuild the thing.

i should have the entire then cleaned and painted by next week.
