  • Rear Axle: 1962 - 64 Rear Axle 4 Speed Axle Bumper bracket? Does anyone have a picture of one mounted & to sell

    Hi Guys,
    I am preparing a 1962 Convertible that is a V8 4 Speed. It was formally a 6cyl manual car.

    There is a rear axle bumper that goes above the diff nose from memory to stop the drive shaft rubbing the transmission tunnel under load.
    My old 62 Ragtop I had in Oz had one, but I cannot remember where it was mounted.

    So can someone post a picture for me of one on a car ???

    Does anyone have one they can sell me. Pictures of it are in the parts book as attached. I have the rubber but not the two piece mount.

    Thanks

    Greg, the Only best place the Bracket and Snubber can go is right above the Nose of the Diff. on the Floor Pan.
    All '62 to '64 "Y" Bodies and 4 Speed Cars have this:

    1521-1 .433812 Bumper

    1521-3 .1555093 Retainer

    1521-7 .1555063 Brkt.

        The Bumper is probably common to Packard hence the Packard Part Number, I don't know what year though, that number is prior to 1955 Packard.

          Hey Greg,

          It won't fit if you as running a rear stabilizer on your Hawk.

          Regards,

          Wayne.

            Hi Wayne,
            nice pickup on that score.

            Thanks for the pictures abkco - That is a nice clean car on the under side. I have copied the pictures. As it won't be the hardest part in the world to fabricate if needed.

              Watch out for cracks in the floor where these mount. It would have been nice if the factory reinforced the mounting area.

                Nice to know that people get on the gas hard on their Studies that they need the pinon snubber..

                These just "Float" between the frame and trunk pan, hence the cracking of the trunk pans..

                I will be drilling and bolting it to the frame.

                  I have just ordered the main bracket from SI. They are $18.00 each.

                  They did not have the lower mount, but I can make it easy enough.
