The rear-carrier assembly jackshaft is made from 300M material and has been splined for a Type 2 VW with a Porsche 930 CV flange. The assembly is held together with a bearing spacer and the bearings have been pressed into a piece of 3-inch DOM tubing welded to the chassis rails. Since the drive system is a 530-series super-duty chaindriven "live" axle, the rail currently utilizes a single-hydraulic caliper from a VW Karmann-Ghia to haul it down from speed. Bob is looking into upgrading to a four-piston caliper for a little more stopping power.
