    For anybody who wants to know what the spindle sockets look like, especially between the D44/10B and the D60, for when they are trying to buy one at a parts store, print this picture and take it with you to show your idiot parts man!!! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    On the left is the Dana 60 front socket.
    In the middle is the 10B/D44 socket.
    The right side socket is the 14FF rear.
    The little chrome socket in the front middle is the 10B/D44 ball joint socket. (ask Executioner how to use this! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif)

    All the sockets but the 14FF are from Snap-On Tools.

    The 14FF socket I have does not have any stampings for a name or part number.

    Snap-On has the 14FF socket. Just expect to spend about $40 per socket from Snap-On. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif The little ball joint socket will cost cheaper, under $15.

    Wes,

    What does it mean when you can use a 6-Prong Socket from your recent 14BFF rebuild on a 1980 D60, and it works just fine?

    Has someone swapped out those nuts on me....? /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif

    I was pleased when I went to take the hub off my 60, and realized I actually OWNED the right tool and didn't have to go to the parts store (for ONCE!)....now you have me wondering.


    BONUS QUESTION: Do you remember what year those 8-Lug Conversion parts you sold to ScoobyDan were....I bought them from him, and now I'm trying to document the "hodgepodge" of model years onto a data sheet for the glovebox, in case I ever need a replacement part.

    Greg, I've never seen a D60 with 6-prongs on the nuts. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

    As for the bonus question /forums/images/icons/wink.gif: it's been a while since I sold those to Dan, but if I can remember right, I believe those came off a '79 K20. Very positive they are from that blue '79 K20 I got and tore apart. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    What can I say? I'm sorry? /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Wanna see something weird? Go check out the rear spindle nuts on a Ford. Some of those have hex shaped heads and use a LARGE socket to fit over them. /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif Nothing like these pronged sockets at all...just larger socket to fit over the nut. I have some in the garage and they will fit and work fine on any 14FF, too. /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif

    Thanks for the photo! Im not sure which side of the counter the idiot is on but it will come in handy when I go lookin for the socket for the 14 ff I just got..
    would make setting the preload nice and easy...

    I just learned how nice it is to take apart hubs with the right tool about a month ago. I had no idea there was a special socket! I went into my local parts store (Allied) and found a couple of different sockets... I couldn't see the nuts in my head when I was looking at them so I passed on buying any....

    You da man!

    Thanks

    My D60 came out of a military K30 and it has 6 prongs on the spindle socket. I was too cheap to pay 35 bucks for the socket so I made one out of a 2 inch x 6 inch pipe nipple with a hacksaw and an air cutoff tool. works great
