PLEASE HELP!! I'm a sucker... I like old school KISS trucks, so I bought an 26k gvw '88 MBZ 1117 (I've seen it referred to as a L1117 also) chip dump truck for my arborist business ten years ago. I brought the body back to beautiful, painted and lettered it. We get a lot of admirers and we love the attributes this truck offers, but we broke an axle shaft and I cannot find one. It's got numbers stamped into the end - 3440001 - and what looks like a crown and "LV" closeby. Nothing else... no Eaton, Dana, Splicer... nothing. It's got 38 splines; 16 holes (looks like 12 or 13 mm); length to inside flange 37.75” – length to outside flange 38.25”. Last 8 of the VIN are JN769779 Does anyone know where I might find this. Oh... the left and right sides are symmetrical, but the left side broke. I really need to get this back no the road. Thanks!!!
