[Healeys] Axle Numbers

Mon Sep 18 19:13:50 MDT 2017

A 4.10:1 ratio would be incorrect for a BN1. That ratio was standard on the Hypoid axle cars (BN2-BJ7) but the spiral bevel axles had a standard ratio of 4.125:1.

4638 is the rear axle serial number.  I don't know if the prefix "BN1" (?) is part of the serial number, but there is no such prefix for BJ8 rear axle serial numbers.  The 10/41 is the differential ratio (10 pinion teeth to 41 crown wheel teeth.  Usually written as ratio 41/10 = 4.1

Can someone decipher these numbers I found on the axle?
