    Getting a 14 for $75.00, don't know if it's FF or SF though... drum brakes, rusty as hell, and don't know the gearing. For $75, I can't go wrong though... right?

    For $75 it is prolly a 14FF the way to tell is a 14SF has drums that look like any 1/2 ton axle and the gear case looks like an egg. A 14FF has hubs that stick out past the drum that the center of the wheel sits on and the gear case is almost a Diamond shape of sorts. and it is huge.

    Here is a pick of a 14FF cover from Kidjethro

    Its An Ff... Woot!!!


    How much should I expect to pay for a rebuild and regear of this thing if its not already 4.10? The guy also has a Furd 9 Inch that I could probably steal from him for $75 too... which should I do, the 14 or the 9in?

    Uh oh....not this debate again! :D

    The 14BFF will be easier and costs less to get it installed in your K5. Disk brakes are a no brainer and it will require less fab work. Besides, 9 inchers are 5-lug.....which makes it more difficult to get a matching bolt pattern in front. ;)

    Indeed... good point... I'll stick with the nearly free 14bolt...

    Now how much will I pay to get it rebuilt?
