'55 thru '63 chevy dropout 8 1/4" rear axle.
friend of mine has one in his '42 rod pickup. i have used them for years. he was cruising down the road and an axle started coming out! the bearing stayed in place but the retainer ring was loose. he banged the axle back in and limped home. this has never happened to me. how about anyone else? anyone know the cause?
