Billy P,
Gotta admit this one really got me in.
Given the posts on this forum lately about changing wheel sizes, outer circumferences etc and your bit about swapping out the original worm drive bogie for the Mack chain drive, looks like they were not all that worried about the difference in gearing (if any) between front and rear diff. Maybe they didn't worry too much about engaging the front diff, or reckoned that because she was spending so much time on bush tracks that a bit of diff 'wind-up' wasn't going to hurt her. Been a great post and a fascinating bit of history.
Must be , or had been, a lot of these old bitza's cobbled together years ago that built some blokes businesses up.
Cheers, Dave

That shaft looks like a spline or two out of alignment, just as well there is not a lot of angle on it.
