Thanks to Jeff Theobald for posting photos of the 1925 Stanley Model SV 252G restoration slowly grinding along in Dallas, TX.
I am looking for an aluminum rear end for the SV. I heard a story that one sold at the Aimsley auction in the 1990s and that it eventually went to England. Does anyone know where it is or who may have it?
The rear end on my SV is fine, except that I cannot get the axel out of the right side section - the left side came apart just fine. It was steam cleaned, and there is little grease in the bearing inside the bevel gear on the inside of the rear end's left end. Yes, the rear end come apart at the center. I cannot get to this bearing to re-grease it properly.
I'd like to try to press this axel out, but I am worried about breaking the aluminum casting. If I could find a spare, it would be nice.
Thank you very much.
