HI; I need help identifying the grey rear drive unit on this frame. There are no markings that I can find. Wheels are 11 3/4 inch diameter, with 10 wood spokes. Any idea what the wood spoke wheels came off of? The axle shaft is 9/16 inches. The leaf springs are 9/16 inches wide & there are 7 leafs. The overall width of the rear is 23 1/4 inches wide. the wide band at each end of tube is 3/4 inches wide, x 2 inch diameter. Axle tubes are 10 1/8 inches long. Live axle straight through wheel to wheel with a dished gear in center of housing. 2 oil cups on bottom (barely seen in the pictures). I think these oil cups should be on top? 3 bolt flange each side. Gear box bottom 3 1/8 inches deep. In the last picture there is a slotted screw/bolt for adjustments(maybe)? Hole opening in front 1 3/8 inches. Hole is 5/8 inches deep to lip. Bolt holes across top flange 1 9/16 inches center to center, side bolt holes 1 5/8 inches center to center. I would like to know maker of the gear box? What mounts up to flange to drive rear wheels? I would like to know what this gear box was used for besides this pedal car size frame. I also have listed a truck crane, tractor I need help with. Thanks.
