One Piece Axle Question-Important
I just installed Genuine Gear one piece axles on my AMC20 rear diff and noticed that the hub is not drilled and tapped for the three screw that secure the brake drum to the hub. The only thing keeping the drum in place is the wheel and lug nuts.
Are all one piece axles like this?
Is this going to be a problem?
Should I try drilling and tapping the axle?
