I started taking my 314 apart for a repaint. Last night I took the axle off and removed the spindles. No snapring on lefft side. I don't see a snap ring in pictures in manual .  My question is shouldn't there be one . The groove is there for it.

Larry, the left one has the spline on it if memory serves. That one is held by the bolt that goes through the hollow between the bottom and top sections of the spindle spline when the steering linkage is attached. I have a 317 apart right now which has the identical front axle. I don't see a snap ring groove on mine. There is definitely a groove and snap ring on the other spindle.
