A follow up to my earlier post about the rear axle marking details. What is the significance of this yellow number?? I'm trying to decipher mine. It looks like 1-something.

Here is one that I have seen often (34). Is it factory specific?

Also, mine looks stenciled.

I'm not sure but on Peter's webpage it clearly looks like a 34. I think his is a San Jose car. I've seen "31" for the spline but it is typically on the outer end of tube. I was looking at your pics from previous post, I could be wrong here but isn't the axle tag usually on driver's side of pumpkin?

Tim, yes, there is a 31 on the end of the axle tube, which I have duplicated. Not sure what the '34' indicates inboard.

Every tag I have seen has been on the passenger side.
