It's why they have double tyres in the rear to carry the extra load. These were car chassis in the beginning not trucks.

Thanks for all the great advice. Until I can determine  what the axle is ( not a Bedford J1 apparently) I can't get hubs so I  can't   go forward  with wheels.

 Anybody gor a suitable front axle with hubs for sale or recognise this one with the missing brake hubs?

Thanks again

Don

Thanks  for replying. They are very similar but different.  The recessed casting on mine is different  - possibly from a  lighter bedford of the same time.    The dimensions from the spring mounts look shorter on mine too - unfortunately.

The width between the tyres on her now is the same as on my Vauxhall/Nissan/Renault  van. 

If anyone knows on a cheap axle I can try I'll have a go,

Tks

Don

Front hub - possibly Dennis has a stamped makers name "LEYS" and a number of 3000052 in the casting.
