1928-48 Ford Rear Axle Hub Key
                        

On early Ford's, the rear axles have a key way cut into the tapered end of the axle where a steel key is fitted, the wheels lock onto this key, and are then held onto the axle with a nut.  Be sure to check your old keys, worn keys can damage the keyway and therefore the axle.

This is a 1928-48 Ford tight fitting rear axle hub key that will prevent damage to the axle key way.  This key is tapered 1/4" on one side and 1/2" on the other side.  The 1/2" tapered end goes towards the differential.
