3/37 D-13           Return to MSR&LHA Home page

End view of the truck showing the new bronze liners installed into the crossboxes, ready to receive the truck shaft. Note the lack of a thrust sleeve between the ring gear carrier, and the fireman's side driver (where what used to be my favorite brown towel is draped). The fact that the spacer was missing was not noticed until very late in the assembly process; and this is the only axle of the seven (we do have one spare) that has this part missing in action. This problem is being solved by making a sectional, bolt-together replacement.
