I bought a Ford axle with the upper bearing and the studded plate...($2)

I now have a guy who will mill the spined end down to 1 inch and fix me up with a floor bearing.

I'm having him mill 1 foot of the splined end to 1 inch. I hope it will give me enough 1" shaft length for any pullys. (cost of milling 1 hr/ $50)
