    Hi Everyone,
    Looking for so guidance on a rebuild of axles for a ‘65 Chrysler.

    After removing the bearings and retainers from the adjuster side axle, we noticed this slot. Is this normal?

    No, some idiot burned off the old bearing with a torch, that axle is unsafe and is junk. Heat should never be applied to any axle.

    Unsafe. I had an axle fail while I was driving because of that very issue - lost a wheel on an off ramp.
