Sometimes when trying to identify unknown axles it is helpful to look at the bearing cap. Look at the manner it is attached. Is
it bolted on and if so, how many bolts? Is it a screw on type cap and if so is the thread on the inside or outside of the cap.
Alternatively it may be a push on/in cap. Does it push into the centre boss of the hub or does it shove on over the boss.
If the hub is off, see are there 2 taper roller bearings or just one of the more modern sealed type cartridge bearings.
Wheel studs are of 2 main types. These are either
the back nut type which is retained in the hub by a nut at the end opposite to the wheel nut.
The other type is the most common and has a head on the inside or rear of the hub. The stud is generally hammered into the hub
and is kept from spinning by the splines which are below or near the head.
