    I dont know where you are in Iowa but Inland Truck Parts on NE 14th here in Des Moines are a spicer dealer and were always able to get me anything I needed for my 60 build. They are very resonable on gear changes too. I took them the parts and they charged me $200 to put in new gears, bearings, and seals. I hope your money tree still has some "foliage" on it.

    sent boyce an email as well as dynatrac. Maybe they will come back with something. Haven't as of yet tried the wanted forum here. All my on hand cash is going to the purchase of the axle itself so I didn't want to strike up a deal for something I can't pay for yet. Any how if somebody has bought some from somewhere, How much were they?

    $200 to gear, seal, and re-bearing a D60? Hmm...maybe I have to take a road trip.

    Sounds cool. We have a midland truck parts up here so I will give them a call tomorrow. They are a Dana/Spicer dealer if memory serves.

    I'd avoid Boyce equipment unless you have NO other choice....


    My one and only experience with them was unpleasant, and had nothing to do with the mistakes they made (mistakes can always happen)....but rather their denial of any wrongdoing and refusal to provide even rudimentary "customer service".

    I'm not on a personal crusade against them... but I will certainly tell you it's a "buyer beware" situation with those guys. /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif
