Axle tube and paint

Recommended Posts

christopher
Hello, I am finally getting my transmission back together on my 2110. I replaced my broken axle tube along with bearings, seals and keys. My question is about painting the axle tube, I was going to paint it to protect it against rust. When I look at my old tube the exposed areas are free from paint and rust. I didn't remove the paint so I don't know if there was any or if the oil removed it? Will this rust if not protected? are they painted originally? Any suggestions? Thanks

Yes they will rust.I suggest do not paint the exposed areas,just wipe some oil on it so it can be easily inspected for cracks from time to time.
