Mark Williams Enterprises is available to manufacture custom parts for your application. We specialize in shaft and spline applications that can be difficult to source. Past applications include reproduction of vintage brake calipers, Hewland output shafts, vintage knock off spindles, CV driveshafts, CV axle upgrades, and more.

Our large range of in-house capabilities allow us to manufacture complicated parts with precision and control. Whether you need splines, grinding, heat treating, or any array of CNC mill and lathe capabilites, we can help. With over 50 years of expertise we can get you on the track and moving forward.

 

Vintage Corvette Road Race Axles

 
Only 5 of the 1963 Grand Sport Racing Corvettes produced utilized a knock off rear axle/spindle design. The original GM design featured a troublesome tapered key design that was not able to withstand repeated assembly and disassembly. The customer turned to Mark Williams Enterprises for a solution to replace and improve the original design where we re-designed the two piece hub into a one piece model. The replacement part retained all the original style but with increased strength and durability. The parts were machined from a solid 6-1/2” bar of 4340 steel weighing 105# and finished to an 11# high strength hub.
 

Import CV Joint Driveshaft

 
Imports are continually increasing top engine speed and as a result, critical speed is rapidly being approached with OEM shafts. Designed for a Honda S-2000 this shaft replaces the OEM two piece shaft. The replacement aluminum shaft is able to sustain the higher critical speeds the OEM shaft was previously unable to attain without a carrier bearing. The lighter aluminum shaft shed several pounds from the system reducing rotating mass. The drag induced by the carrier bearing was also eliminated by using a one peice shaft.
 

1966 Hayman SR-3 Can-Am Car

 
This unique car is one of three built by Hayman Engineering, a Canadian helicopter manufacturer. Owner Gorge Frey restored the all-aluminum monocoque car to show quality condition. There was a need to upgrade the axles, front hubs and brakes with new components to improve functionally. The owner relied upon Mark Williams Enterprises to adapt our vented brake assembly including custom hubs and axle assemblies to the existing hub carriers. Custom parts produced for this project included flanged axles, aluminum front hubs, brake adaptors and special wheel studs.
 

Replacement Lathe Shaft

 
Mark Williams Enterprises produces many special splined shafts. Our facility has specialized equipment that allows fast production of special splined shafts. The pictured shaft was re-produced from a broken sample. The entire project included reverse engineering, creating a three-dimensional model with shop drawings,CNC programming, process development and part completion in less than two weeks. Our complete in-house CNC turning, spline cutting, heat-treating and CNC grinding allow special part deliveries that are unrivaled in the industry
   

Brill Motor Car Driveline


Heritage Express Trolley car is a restored 1924 Brill Motor Car that runs daily in El Reno, Oklahoma. The challenge was to renovate the clunky u-joint style system and replace it with a smoother running, reliable system. The original 5 u-joint style setup was loud, clunky and needed to be repaired every 4 months. The answer was to replace all the u-joints with quiet CV-Joints. This allowed the power transmission to move easily through an intricate path, ignoring problematic operating angles.
