The rear axle Identification numbers consisted of a 3 digit Prefix, a serial number and a suffix Letter. The Salisbury rear axle is different in that a typical number would read H74-2345. The letter H indicates the build sanction, 74 refers to the year of manufacturer (in this case 1974) and the remaining digits are a sequential serial number. The identifying pre fixes for the rear axles are the same as for front axles, although the suffixes were as below.
