    Ford Pop v Fordson axle

    Still researching what front axle to go for and need some help from the Upright ford experts.

    Is the axle from the 10cwt E83W Fordson van exactly the same as the upright pop or are the spindles heavier etc ?

    thanks Steve

    the E83W axle itself is identical to a model A(2-1/4" deep), except 5" narrower. 45-1/2" kingpin to kingpin.
    (so wider than a E93A one)
    the spindles take model A size kingpins, but use english ford brake backplate bolt spacing. from memory the bearings/spindle stub are bigger too.
    the wishbones are 28" long when cut to split.
    the brakes themselves are of a very interesting construction, the drums are mounted behind the hubs using the wheel bolts, so you can remove the drum assembly and fit discs behind the hubs and retain the wide 5 pattern.

    i have a complete E83W axle here with wishbones, brakes and wheels if you need any more info.

    Thanks for the replies,

    Is there any information regarding what hubs / bearings will fit the stubs, I would prefer drums but something more upto date and juice if possible.

    well theres a couple of options. you can either fit VW wheel cyls into the existing brakes quite easily to convert to juice (probably the cheapest option) or fit 36-48 american ford spindles and '40/f1/f100(with adapters) brakes.

    Got one of these axles myself which I need to juice,

    From what I've found out you can use beetle wheel cylinders but that needs ears welding onto the brake shoes or the other option is series 1 Land rover cylinders these don't need ears welding onto the shoes but do need a fair bit of modification to the backing plates to fit

    If anyone else has any other ideas I'd love to here

    Oops just seen the date
