Re: 1964 country sedAn 9” axle bearings

My 63 four door hardtop read axle had the small axle bearings.  My 63 convertible has large bearings.   I was actually wondering if it was a small block/big block thing.  But I would bet the wagon if still stock had large bearings.   Problem is after all these years you never know if it had a replacement fear put under it.  You really need to measure the axle retainer studs to know without taking it apart.

Re: 1964 country sedAn 9” axle bearings

A small bearing housing can be differentiated from a large bearing housing by the size of the nuts and thread used to retain the brake backing plates to the housing. The small bearing housings use 9/16 socket size nuts with 3/8" fine thread, while the larger bearing use 11/16" socket size and 7/16" fine thread. Once you determine large or small bearing, the axle bearings are readily available at most popular auto parts stores.
