I have a near new set of Warn hubs for an older style coarse spline axle. They are free to whomever can use them.

No, these will only fit the old style FJ40/55 axles that came with coarse 10 spline axles. I know I spoke with someone at the last club meeting who might of had a use for these.

Dr. Schlegel, your 40 is a 72 isn't it? Maybe it was you that could use these?

If the are the same as on a '76 FJ40, I'll take them. If they aren't identical, I will pass.

Yes I have a '72. I will take them if they are not claimed already. Would love to get rid of that safety wire. For some reason a wire doesn't make me feel safe.

Warn locking hubs have nothing to do with your safety wire. The safety wire is used to thread through the holes in the heads of the bolts that hold the spindle to the knuckle. And it is a good method, used in avionics and required in many places in motor sport racing.

Of course, all of the other Toyotas that don't have those safety wires don't seem to have an issue with the spindles falling off..............

True, they increased the fastener size from M8 to M10, and the size of both the spindles and hubs were increased. The split lock washer used on the M10 fasteners is significantly stronger than the M8 counterpart.
