FREE: Dexter Torflex axle from T@B - Phoenix-area

Postby AzAv8r » Sat May 05, 2018 7:14 pm

(Edited 10/24/19 to change title - Free to good home!)
(** Edited to add price and an unfinished sentence.**)

I've replaced the standard axle on our T@B 320 with the lifted "Outback" axle, so I have the original axle available. The axle weighs over 100 lbs, so shipping would be challenging - thus, I'd prefer to sell it to someone who can come pick it up.
Specs:
rated 3000 lbs
10.5" electric brakes, 5x4.5" pattern
"drop" -> swing-arms are 22.5deg up from the horizontal. (for those curious, the "Outback" axle has 22.5 deg down)
48" between the frame-mount plates.

Dexter tag has the following:
PN 1447179.9
U29 FC 64/49.2 1MM 1B AKSM 10U UL FL 545E

A little beefy for a typical teardrop, but for a standy like the T@B this could be useful.

The mounting plates are tall (say 6"), so there are two 1/2" bolts on either side of the cross-member, and two above it. The T@B frame has a slot for the cross-member, and tapers vertically fore and aft of the axle-mounting position - a good design for a lightweight frame (the axle is Integral to frame strength).

I'll get a few pictures if someone is interested. Axle is from a 2016 T@B we bought used last year. We put 2000 miles on it; the people we bought it from put perhaps 1000 miles on it based on their described usage).

FREE!

Thx,
Jon

Let me check the specs on it, I'd like to put brakes on my T@G, this might be an easier solution.

How much are you asking for it?

Getting info together, mine has a Dexter 2000 and I have the BOM for it from them, trying to locate yours for comparison.

We'd drive over to get it....

One thought = if your current axle has the tabs for the brake backing plate, it *might* be easier to just move the backing plates and hubs. Keep the spring rate the same. I don't remember whether Dexter axles always include the brake-plate tabs.

Still sitting in the garage, so free for the taking.
I have some ideas on how to make this style of axle mount work with a typical box-beam welded frame.

Darn, I have to go back to San Diego next weekend to get the last of our stuff from the move to Big Pine. I could come get it the weekend of the 9th. I guess I could travel during the week, I forget I'm retired and there is no traffic in the eastern sierra's
