I have a 1936 Stutz firetruck. The chassis was built by Indiana Truck (bought out by White, I believe).
On the front of the rear axle pumpkin it has "Timken 5200-0-0225". There is a 1" diameter bolt and locknut that screws into the side of the case on the front side near the driveshaft and at a 90 degree angle to the driveshaft. Does anyone know what this bolt is for? Thanks!

Glenn Akers answered the 1st time you asked... Likely a thrust pad for the ring gear but a picture would help.

Thanks, Geoff.  I didn't see any responses for the first post.  A thrust pad for the ring gear sounds right.  The bolt looks like it's in line for the side of the ring gear.  I'll post a picture.

This is the picture of the rear axle and the bolt.  How should this adjustment be made?  Thanks!
