    <font color="green"> All of it should swap over. He'll have to change it from the knuckles out to get the 8 lug. The gears will swap so long as the Ford one is not a reverse rotation. </font color>

    thanks for the info, i think his is reverse rotation it is a 78 and the pinion set higher than on a reg d44 it is above axle center so i assume it is a reverse rotation thanks again
