Sorry to Hijack but do you know what the length of the tubes are too, from gearbox to spring plate mounting face?

I've measured a 67KG one to be 440mm
A 66 Splitty is 460mm
A 63 type 3 is 400mm
(I think thats it. I got the figures at home but I'm at work now so its from memory)

Anyway, question is, what is used for a splitty straight axle conversion? Obviously it needs to be close to 460mm

Thanks

For a straight axle in a split bus you need a short axle tube end casting with a long axle.Does that make sense?Is that what your asking?

You can buy axle tubes ready to go or use a modified short axle tube from 61/66 bug (it needs to be lengthened at the gearbox end so the weld s are inside the gaitor).
