if you haven't had it out, how do you know that all it needs is a stub axle? Some things can only be seen once it's open.

I can save you some time and say that 7mm is bigger than 1/4". 6mm is only slightly smaller. So it could be 5mm.

12pt 1/4" for the diff end of the drive shaft.
I think it was E20 that I used on the half shafts (female torx socket) or 8mm spline sockets give a very nice fit.

The temperature won't make much of a difference. At 4-5x the expected reading it is most likely the problem. If not it certainly won't be helping.
