'83 rear axle

Postby dsimmonds53 » Mon May 16, 2011 10:29 am



Just wondering. I pulled the rear wheel off my '83 to change the tire. The axle did NOT have a castle nut and cotter pin. No hole, so I assume there isn't one. Also checked the parts fiche. The number for the '83 is different than earlier years.

My guess is I don't need the safety pin in the axle. Any thoughts out there?



Thanks



David

My 83 and 84 and 81 do not have a pin.The nut is a "self lock"type.
