What did I dig up this time?

 

Looks like some kind of diff? Someone soldered the inner hub to the spur gear.

Looks like a 1/8 crown reduced to use a 3/32 axle with a sleeve. If you want to restore it to 1/8, place it over a vice, adjust the vice, place a dummy 1/8 axle over the sleeve, and punch it out.

 

I may be wrong but that's what I'm guessing.

From the looks of those teeth, that is a Tradeship style hypoid but you need the matching pinion.

It's not sleeved down to 3/32. And it is at least 2 pieces. A previous owner has soldered the hub to the gear.

Both crown and spur?   That's a lot of weight to turn over.

Mark,

 

The spur gear was just holding the axle for the picture.

Looks like 48Pitch bevel gear.  In the early 1960s, I sourced Boston brand gears that needed to be sleeved for slot car uses...from Berry Bearing where we also got Loctite.
