NATO 110 rear axles, guess who makes them..

I was talking with a guy out on the lake bed at KOH this weekend and found out who actually made recent batch of NATO 110 rear axles. Interesting to say the least.. I'll give you guys a few guesses, and Baldewin cant comment since he was there.. :P

also, let me clarify. I mean the complete rear axle housing, not the shafts.

From talking to one of the guys that works at Dynatrac they were doing the work on contract from Ricardo in the UK. It was funny though, they were speccing the mounts for the swaybars had to be within 0.010 of dimensions. Shock mounts were fine to be off a bit but the swaybar mounts had to be spot on. Going to try to touch base with the guy and see if they still have a unit sitting around he can snap some pics of. He said if he ever saw one of those axles again it would be too soon.

What's the difference between a NATO rear axle and a Salsbury? I thought they were one in the same.

Now you say that I swear Dynatrac did a few LR axles years ago.

They (these new axles) were for a particular vehicle. the e-WMIK-R, which is/was a rebuilt 110 WMIK with extra armour plating, 2.8 Tdi engine and autobox, done by Ricardo.
I think the whole vehicle weighed in at about 7 tonnes with troops & kit.

The rear axle was this special jobbie, extra extra HD really. slightly wider too than a standard rover axle (I think)

The salisbury hasn't been used since about 2002, when the 2 piece "rover" type axle was used on the rear of 110's and 130s (although the axle casing is much thicker than a 90 or disco rear casing) it also uses the short nose 4 pinion diff.

the "wolf" XD 110/130 uses this same rover type casing, but with welded on bracings (like the old series 2 109" rear had)... There is a company here in the UK selling weld on kits to beef up the normal civvy spec 110 rear casing (and presumably the front too) with similar weld on bracings.
