The construction of the device (100) permits it to accommodate varying pinion angles and axle housing (102) mismatch.
The preferred method of welding the axle connection device (100) to the axle housing (102) is also disclosed.
The adapter plate is generally C-shaped to allow mounting around the central region of the axle housing.
The system as shown in figure 10 uses interfitting bottom (7) and top (8) axle housing wraps.
The vehicle engaging component may be a pin (124) for engaging a hook shaped bracket (96) that is fixed to the vehicle's axle housing (94) of the vehicle.
A wheel hub (30) is fitted on a bearing in an axle casing (1) around a stub axle (32) so that it may pivot to a limited extend.
The front axle case has a central case molded body (70) and has left and right case molded bodies (71) whose base end sections are connected to left and right end sections of the central case molded body.
The assembly comprises: an axle casing connected substantially parallel to at least one wheel axle and rotatably connected proximal to an underside of the vehicle.
The transmission is provided by a bevel gear reduction stage (12) which drives an axle (2) mounted in a hub (3) integral with the axle casing.
The engine (18) is supported at the front and rear by a front bracket (48) provided to the joint member (32) and by a rear bracket (49) provided to the rear axle case (25).
The axle bracket housing (10) is provided with a central support unit (12) and with two axle units (18) welded to the support unit (12) on opposite sides (14, 16).
An axle drive for an all-wheel drive motor vehicle driven by a reciprocating piston engine (2) is enclosed in an axle gear housing (10, 27) flanged-mounted on the oil sump (9).
