    Well I finally gave into temptation. I was at marvs last friday and said I wanted to buy his dodge D60, and the funny part is he wanted to sell it. So now the fun begins. I want to find a couple of local favors if at all possible. I want to find a 1310 yoke and a stock arm (hopefully with a block). The arm will be temporary 'till I can afford x-over.

    Any help along with ideas on parts or modifications will be appreciated.

    PS. I already have a buyer for both of my D44's so no vulturing. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I've got a 1310 yoke, at least I think I still have it, if I can find it. I've also got a stock steering arm you can have if you can find me a stock tin cap (like goes on the passenger side).

    Not to hijack, but I'm buy the Dana 70 out of the rear of the Dodge and need a yoke for the Dana 70 to goto 1350 u-jiont. Anyone got ideas as to where to get one cheap? Cause the Detroit Locker /forums/images/graemlins/woot.giffor the Dana 70 is costing more than the front and the rear axles toghether /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    Russ I will see if I can dig one up, will a ford D60 be the same?

    Rob I figure the flex issue is like this, us younger guys are just more flexible ourselves than our trucks, you older guys aren't as flexible but make up for it in your trucks so when I am about 29 I should be in a happy medium. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    78-79 is the only year for the Ford king pins, but any king pin top hat should do...

    Marv and Jay, GM used D70s in (most?) all dual wheel 1 tons.

    Sorry, miss-spoke. "Dually" trucks had D70 (thought I've heard claims of C14FF in dually trucks, I'm not convinced). "Dual wheel" chassis cabs had C14FFs...

    You're right Russ /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif.
    I too have yet to see a 14FF under a DRW p/u. Seen lots under cab/chassis (D70's too), but not under a p/u. It was a track width issue I was told. There were three or four widths (including the DRW p/u width) available. I didn't realize this until I started doing some research on a DRW conversion a few, uh, several years ago. At this point, those memory cells have some surface rust on them so I'm not exactly sure of the total amount of widths available, but I know there was at least three, possibly four.

    I got a correction from my buddy Matt (NoRulz).

    [ QUOTE ]
    77.5-79, & 85-91 are kingpin (80-84 1tons were TTB )
    the 85-91 had a wider frame & the short side tube is only about 6" between the housing & the inner "C" though... nasty offset that's hard to use without retubing so it's alot less popular.

    Apparently Parts Mike has the little top hats for $8, so that would be one cheap option for a steering arm. I just need something to close the king pin if I take mine off. But sounds like you have another anyway...

    I'll call mike and trade you just the same. Do you have a 1310 yoke still (I have one on its way but want a spare).
    Thanx.
