Axles & Drivelines
The current types of axles we support are Meritor, Eaton, Dana, and others. MTP is an authorized Meritor rebuild center which enables us to obtain very competitive parts pricing and availability for the wide array of Meritor axles in use on military vehicles. Each axle is rebuilt in accordance with military standards and OEM Field Service Manuals as required per each government contract.
To briefly walk through our axle rebuild process: All units are stripped and cleaned before all parts are examined. All bearings, seals and fasteners are discarded. All parts are crack tested (using Magnaflux) when necessary. All discarded parts are replaced with new, to the latest engineering levels. The differential is assembled to the same procedure as a new unit using OEM or military specs as required by the contract. The gear contact pattern is checked under full load using lapping compounds as the OEM does. Every axle undergoes a Bleed Air Test to ensure all seals and housing gaskets are free from leaks and other defects. The unit is tested under load for noise and differential lock operation and then passing units are marked for full traceability.
There are several different types of Meritor Axles available out there in the market going back to the days of Rockwell axles. MTP Drivetrain Services handles all types of the legacy Rockwell and current Meritor models. The list of different model types can be found below.

What is a driveline? A driveline consists of parts of the powertrain. The engine and transmission are both absent from the driveline. This part of the vehicle changes depending on whether or not the vehicle is front-wheel, read-wheel, or four-wheel drive.
Whether you may need driveshafts, steering knuckles, yokes, or other driveline components, MTP Drivetrain Services can possibly provide new, new surplus, aftermarket, or remanufactured components to match your requirement.
