    14-Bolt Casting Numbers & Stamping #\'s....Can someone here decode them?

    After the success of the ORD product installations....I've decided to SLOWLY tinker with the 14BFF sitting in the corner of my garage. Today I began the SLOW process of carefully cutting off the spring pad and shock mount from one side of the axle.

    As I began cleaning off the years of grease and grime, I found a stamping on the axle tube:

    T F D G 0 0 8 6


    Also on the pumpkin itself are some markings, but these are actually "cast" into the part:

    There are 4 rows of symbols and numbers:

    Row 1: A circle made up of about 16 dots and then off to the right is the number 3
    Row 2: A symbol that looks like a pizza with 6 slices, then the letters "CFD" then another round symbol with a slash in it.
    Row 3: That circle-slash icon again, then "353", then another circle-slash icon
    Row 4: The number "3977323"

    ....Can anyone tell what year/make/model this is? I was told it was a late 70's truck....and the spring pads are definitely NOT a bolt-in for my '72.

    Anyway....just curious if anyone knows, or can tell me what sort of "reference book" would have this kind of info?

    The first set of #'s and letters is the one you want to find .
    I have seen them decoded in a Junk Yard Book, at the junk yard.
    Good luck
