  • Front Axle splines

    Happy New Year everyone!
    '49 B1 PW. 9 5/8" frt axle. Looking for lock-outs. How many splines on the outer axle shafts?

    Axle spline count is 14. Original Warn model was M-13. There is at least one reproduction hub that looks very similar to the Warn and there are others.

    In the interest of accuracy, we have 16 spline axles not 14 spline. Would guess Cheyenne Dave made a typo in his response to you. He has a good deal of expertise in this area. There was not an option for lock out hubs on your 49, this option came along in the mid 50's and was typically a Warn M-13 - however these are virtually impossible to find now. M-Series Rebuild makes a spectacular reproduction of the Warn M-13 https://www.mseriesrebuild.com/buy_sale.html and you can also consider the AVM hub sold by Vintage Power Wagons.

    Clean fingernails, free weekends, intact knuckles and financial stability are totally overrated.

      Tim is correct, 16 tooth is the original spline count.
      Additionally, i did not mean to infer that the m-13 warn hub was stock equipment, only that the original warn hub model was m-13

        Thanks for the clarification. 16 tooth it is.
        Yes my B1 will not be 100% original, so the lock outs need not be specific to '49
        I mainly wanted to be able to "snag" a pair if they presented themselves.
