The dust shield should come on the bearing and the open side goes down. If you can’t get this in there then you will need to clearance the axle or spindle or both. The cup washer and felt washer goes under the top head of the kingpin.

Is this a bolt-in replacement for a 1941 Ford Coupe?

Your 40 Ford likely has a 48" kingpin to kingpin centerline but you would need to measure to make sure. Next the 37-41 years ran 38 ½" perch centers and the axle in question number 91035118 has 36 3/8" perch centers pulling the wishbones together at the front and also decreasing the distance for the spring hangers. This would then require a shorter spring. Therefore we apologize that it is not a direct bolt in. Sorry we do not offer a direct bolt in chrome axle for your '41 Ford Coupe.
