    unless its missing alot of parts or severely messed up, it's probably worth your time.

    nope not worth your time,:rolleyes: but where is it at anyway?

    I just sold one with the whole truck for $1500, $800 to $1000 is about the going rate.

    Hey both F250 that I have owned had 60 in the front, but then another that I bought had a 44. From what I have been able to determine in my very limited Ford knowledge if it was a standard cab it was a 44 extended cab 60

    it sounds like a 2wd F250. if it is 4x4, i bet it has drum brakes up front anyway.

    the camper special's and the snow fighter F-250's had the HP60 but they where only two years 78/79, then ford went to the TTB 50 till 85 or 86 then back to the HP60 but only in the F-350. i did find a 77 with a HP60 front and a divorced 205 ( camper special ) but the build date was 11-77 so my guess would be the last months of 77 you could get one.

    before 78 ( or late 77 ) they where low pinion dana 60 but with 30 spline inners and ( i think ) 19 spline outers and only in the F-350, i picked up a 76 cause it had a divorced 203 and i noticed the front ( LP60 ) when we got it back to the shop, i sold it cheap but kinda wished i held onto it.

    the other odd ball 60 i got was from a 75 or 76 IH ( no paper work ) it had 4.56 gears and was open knuckles, looked just like a chevy or dodge and i thought maybe somone put it in there but after looking thru the 60 bible on pirate they did come thru with them in one of the two years, jason.

    It's a rear axle... and likely 16 spline.

    77.5-79 and 85.5-96 were the kingpin disc brake Dana 60s Ford used.

    You definitely don't want one before 77.5.

    '73 is 1st year for a Ford D60 front iirc.

    Rear... well... at least since the late 50's.

    Slight hijack - but since we are on the topic of first years for D60's . What year did Dodge first start using an open knuckle D60 - is it 1974 ????

    Thanks Tom
