    MY 10 bolt spiders blew up and I have been looking for a 10 or 14 bolt. I found a 1973 3/4 ton 4x4 with a 14 and a d44. It also has a 350/sm465/np205. It has been sitting for a long time and the body is rusted and beaten. Is it worth $400 and will those axles bolt up to my 82 blazer? I figure I can almost get that back out of it with the tranny/t-case. Thanks a lot.

    465/205 and 14 bolt with 8 lug 44 def worth $400. I would think trans and transfer case would be worth that by itself.

    sweet, I think i'll go for it then. Anyone know if the axles will fit directly or how much mod. is needed to put them in an 82 k5?

    The only thing you have to do to make those axles fit is to get a conversion u-Joint. The 14FF is 1350 and your 10 bolt is 1310. I think there might be a caveote that if you have a 465/205 combo then the rear driveline is 1350 even if you have a 10 bolt. I am not sure about this I could be wrong.

    that old a 44 will have a flat top knuckle on pass side . so then you will be half way to cross over steering kit.

    tomorrow i'll pull off some covers and look at it, I'm in Boise ID so it might be a little far. If you wanted to come up here though I'm sure we could work something out, if I get it.

    4.10 most likely. There is a chance they are 4.56.

    I'll hop on with everyone else, get the thing... In my neck of the woods the t-case alone would pull $400 and the axle gears are probably gonna be 4.10
