I am in the process of building a drag mower and have a question.  I have a 36" rear axle.  It has opposed keyways on each end with a snap ring groove at the very end.  Is it acceptable to put the hubs more towards the center of the axle and use lock collars to keep them in place or do i have to put them at the very end of the axle with the snap rings?

You can put the hubs anywhere on the axle you want them. We use multiple locks to hold in position because of the side forces.
