I don't know about BN1s or other models, but some BJ8s had the rear axle serial number stamped into the driver's side axle housing -- numbers only, no prefix like BN1, BJ8, etc.  The rear axle serial number is sometimes identified on the BMIHT certificate, but not always, and some rear axles were not serialized.  I have no idea why some were and some weren't.  Mine isn't.


>From the way yours is stamped, I would say the serial number is either 1565, or simply 565.

While preparing the rear axle of my BN1 for sandblasting, we noticed numbers stamped into the left (driver’s) side of the casing – BN16[?]65.  Anyone know what they mean?
