    I saw a post from my search that had pictures but no numbers. This is what I found at NAPA. # 3246 For use on 82-90 3/4 and 1 ton GM heavy duty trucks. This model is 4 prong. The 6 prong was for pre 82. $40

    When I went to NAPA they had a rack right by the door that had the tools (brake, 4 wheel drive sockets). They had three versions to choose from. And there is no machining necessary for 35 spline shafts. It will be straight forward replacement. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Yes these numbers are correct. I pulled the hub and mine was a four pronger. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    the snap on book lists the 6 pronger as dana 70 only
    does anyone have a d60 that uses 6 prong?

    on a side note when I was looking the numbers up I noticed the spindle puller on the same page so I will be getting one of those to keep up with RedDwarfs collection

    I have a Dana 60 from a 1978 Ford that uses a six prong. I bought the socket at Kragen. IT (the socket) was listed as Ford/Chevy 1 ton blah blah blah words words words (sorry I drank too much and can barely see the key board, let alone remember what the hell I was talking about) . But seriously, it did say Ford/Chevy 1 ton 4x4 something and it fit the 78' Ford Dana 60 front perfect.
