PAUGHCO US-MADE AXLE ASSEMBLIES
The housings are constructed from precision cut and welded 1" x 4" and 1"
x 2½" rectangular tubing, while the axle tubes are made from 2⅜"-diameter
thick wall tubing. The CNC-machined solid steel gear housing holds US-made
Dana 44 spider gears. This is the strongest trike axle available today. Also
featured are automotive-style Timken-type splined wheel hubs. Black Wilwood
two-piston calipers mate with 11.09"-diameter rotors. Axle assemblies are
shipped with a gloss black powdercoated finish. Axles measure 41⅝" from
hub-to-hub, and require the use of 15" x 6" wheels with 2¾" backspace and
GM/Chevy 12mm x 1.5mm pitch lug nuts (sold separately – see below).

Axle Installation Notes: The ABS brake system must be removed on
models that are so equipped, before installation. 1993 Softails with stock
61-tooth rear pulleys and 128-tooth belts, must change to a 132-tooth rear
belt (OEM 40023-86), but your top speed will be reduced. When installing a
PTA-8 on 2006 Softails with a 20mm rear drive belt, we strongly recommend
that you change it to a 11/8"-wide, 135-tooth rear drive belt (OEM 40307-00).
When installing a PTA-10 on 2007–2015 Softails, we strongly recommend
that you change your stock 20mm, 24mm or 1" rear drive belt to a 11/8"-wide,
133-tooth rear drive belt (OEM 40015-00). See catalog page 24.
