Hello Paul, I think you will find that both Ken Rogers and Fred Higgins (same axles) made one wheel drive axles of differing widths. I think it will be easy to tell if you have a tandem trike axle among them as they are heavier duty and take a larger hex fitting hub well at least mine do. I can't get a wheel with a solo hub on my tandem trike axle or vice versa. Best wishes Mick.
