  • Axle Housing Change
  • I need to change out a right rear axle housing on my 1950 8n.There is a race in that housing for the differential bearing (BB4221B).I found a bearing and race set NOS.I have heard never use an old bearing with a new race or vice versa.When I get in there,am I going to be able to exchange the old differential bearing for a new one without special tools or removing the differential?

  • You can drive the bearing off the differential with a drift from the opposite side. Same for the race but you will need a very long drift to reach from wheel end of axle housing to center where the race is located.
