Filler Plug for Banjo Axels

Post by Hammerhead » Sat Jul 11, 2020 5:45 pm

My CCKW has the Banjo Axels. I need a filler plug; had one crack when changing the fluids. Frank CCKW doesn't have any. Thanks for any help.

I will check to see if I have a spare in my parts stash. To broaden your search, the M211 trucks use the same filler plug.

Anyone?

Does anyone have an idea of a civilian interchange that would work?

Hi Hammerhead,

Did not find any civy cross references.

This NSN post shows dimensions, along with alternative PNs:

One possible suggestion: There is a set of used banjo axles currently listed on e-pay. I believe the seller is Sam Winer motors, out of Ohio. In the past, they have had quite a few used CCKW drivetrain parts. Perhaps he would have a spare plug lying around someplace that he would be willing to sell.

Lastly, would it be possible to repair your old plug? What cracked, just the flange?

Best Regards...

Do you have some terneplate gaskets for banjo rear differentials too?
