Post Source for rear end narrowing in Oklahoma area?

Looking for someone good and reliable to narrow a 9" Ford housing and axles for me. Hate to have to ship this thing, if I could just haul it to someones shop reasonably close to OKC.

Randy, Call Parr Automotive in the City and they will be able to tell you of the area machine shops. They are good guys if you have not dealt with them before.

Yes I can weld, but have no way to respline the axles.

Talked to Parr and they did not know of anyone that still does this.

Randy, there is an old time street rodder that used to live in the Midwest City/Choctaw area. His name is Arlan Teeter. Look him up in the white pages and give him a call.

Cool

Find a local machine shop to narrow the housing and get exact measurements how much is taken from each side of the housing. If it's more than 3 or 4 inches I doubt if your axles will have enough of a diameter to respline them. Your best bet would be to order new axles from Moser, Williams or any of the aftermarket supplier. If you give them the lenght of the original and the amount removed' you'll get an exact fit and a strong unit.

Randy, If a machine shop narrows your housing make them aware they need to align the bearing journals and not the housing tubes. If they do not have a jig for doing this I would keep looking. Most shops that do drag car chassis have jigs for proper alignment. We do this is Georgia, but that is a long way from you. Also, you will need to remove at least 4" from each axle or the diameter of the stock axle will not have enough material to respline. Hope this helps......Toni
PS: If you have to buy new axles we can have Moser drop ship them directly to you and save you a few dollars.
