    I am looking at a D60 for what I think a decent price. I don't know a lot about it yet. I don't have the BOM yet, but it is supposedly out of a 79 K30. It is missing the rotors and one drive flange, but otherwise complete.

    I will pop the diff cover off tonight when I go look at it. Beyond that, I'm not sure what to check.

    What should I be checking to make sure I don't get taken?

    What kind of price?

    Any advice is appreciated...

    Are you referring to 30 or 35 spline outers or something different?

    cheack that it is actualy a 60 lots of people sell a '60' but dont know enuff to look, closely, it should have stamped 60 on the flange.

    onle have 3 u-bolts, and 2 bolts into the houseing, and make sure its not a 61, but if it is from a 79 it wont be..

    as far as neck down shafts he mean s the shafts get smaller or 'neck down' right after the splines creating a posable week spot

    He couldn't give me the BOM, but he did say that there is a 60F stamped on the diff web. He gave me the only other number he could locate - C37986 which is the same number listed on another thread. Anyone know what this number represents?

    This axle is a DRW type axle. He's asking $800.00

    I did locate the measurements for the "neck down" versus the new style axle shaft though.

    if it was out of a plow truck, i'd check and make sure that it isn't twisted. also the carrier bearings are notorious on spinning on the carrier , but if you're planning on replaceing the carrier , i wouldn't sweat it.
    good luck.

    $800 seems kinda steep with missing parts. But I geuss in that part of the country they aren't too common.

    I was kinda thinking the same thing, especially for a DRW that I will need to swap out anyways.

    800 seems a bit steap for what you described. i just picked mine up for that and its complete . 800 was actaully more than i wanted to dish out for it . i had the last guy down to 600 ..........then i backed out like an IDIOT :mad: . but that wasnt the first dually 60 that i came across for around that price . i would put some more thought into it:laugh:

    I'm giving up on the dana 60 for a while. I am going to run the setup I have for a couple of years. BUT...

    If I just happen to come across a donor truck with what I'm looking for...:D

    Sent my flat top knuckles off to Parts Mike today to be machined and set up. I picked them up 7 or 8 months ago with the intent to do crossover.

    Do you know how much he wants for the ford dana 60s, and if they are balljoint front ends, or kingpin? Also do you know about what year?

    Also 79, can you e-mail me again the info, and maybe the info on the one you were going to pick up. I had got the e-mail, but when I went to go look at it here, it isnt there anymore.
