Well I brought Jake/Ford in the garage again to check a couple things and found that both my rear rims had considerable hub wobble. Both had worn woodroof keys but the right axle has a very mangled keyslot on the axle. The same axle has a moon shaped crack from the back side of the expanded keyslot down about 1/2 inch from the keyslot. There are some 165 axles on eBay but they look considerably shorter. So my question is, if I remove the axle can the damaged/cracked area be remove and built/milled back up? I know nothing about metallurgy, what can be done or not done or not recommended. I will try some pictures here.
Any thoughts or questions would be appreciated. Thanks
