Hi all, looking at various twin wheel axles on ebay tonight, would anyone know or has converted a CF to another make axle? The old VW LT and LDV 400 axles look like they could be made to fit one way or another. Not bothered about the ratio at the minute, just need to get it mobile!

Earlier LDV 400 with Salisbury axle should have the 10-inch Lockheed brake like CF350 models - change the wheel cylinders to CF, delete auto-adjust if need be. Road wheels are different enough to need a second spare. No idea whether axle attachments will marry up though.

Thanks Phil, I really am struggling with this one at the minute. I have trawled Ebay and several other places but not having much luck with the axle.
