    I scored a deal with a buddy of mine today for a set of 3/4 axels (free) and no I don't feel the need for a 60 up front as of yet. Anyhoo He has a 4.56 geared 3/4 D44 and a couple FF 14 bolt axels. I wan't the front axel for the gears but I need to find an easy way to identafie the gears in a 14 bolt. One of axels appers to have an I.D. tag on one of the cover bolts but is unledgeble. I can always just wait for him to get another rear end in but I just can't wait /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Pull the cover, look for the numbers printed on the ring gear.........then do the math. This way you get to inspect the condition of the gears too........... /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    If the 14 is out of the truck put it on stands and rotate so the fluid doesn't leak out when you pull the cover. Look for 41:9 for 4.56, 41:10 for 4.10, or 41:11 for 3.73...it's stamped right on the ring gear edge... /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif
