WHY I AM A FORD DEALER Because of the strong*, rigid rear axle in the new Ford. It is the % floating principle and the weight of the car ia carried on the axle housing and not on the axle shaft. All high priced cars use % or full floating axles. Let us show you the difference between the % floating axle and the old style that ia still used in a few cars. Our cutaway exhibit includes a rear axle assembly with sections cut out to show bearings. A number of low priced cars have ball bearings running on the axle shaft to carry the load but the model A Ford has Hyatt bearings IVi inches wide running on the housing and in the rear hub. The Ford axle is free to drive the rear wheels, no possible chance for crystallization from road shocks. The differential is supported on each side by Timken tapered roller bearings (not balls). The drive shaft is kept in perfect alignment at universal joint with a Hyatt roller bearing 1-U inches wide (not a bushing), the pinion is held in place by 2 Timken tapered roller bearings (not a ball roll), the entire axle assembly is strengthened by rear radius rods. The front wheel tread (Standard OC Inches) is the .siimc as the rear a wonderful advantage when driving on slippery roads or in ruts. There are Â·! Timken roller bearings and three Hyatt roller bearings in the Ford rear axle (no balls or bushings). A ball bearing has Â«. HpoL of contact, a roller bearing has a line of contact.--Clurraun Scliulicl.
