    I've got a Dana 70 frontend I need to identify. It is closed knuckle, with drum brakes. It has a 4.88:1 gear. It has a passenger side differential. The differential side spring pad has two studs. It is six lug (BIG pattern). It has lockout hubs (broken), retained by six 7/16" bolts. It has a driver's side draglink and steering arm, and a rear side tie rod. The Dana numbers on the tube are: 3193B6 2402.
    Any ideas as to what it is? I know the spindles are larger than a Dana 44, and the outer hub diameter is around 6.250".
    The axle shafts "look" larger than Dana 44 stuff as well. Sorry, no pics available as yet.
    Thanks.

    Could be, I'm not sure what it is. I'm trying to decide whether or not to use it. That's why I need to know for sure what it is. Until I have a positive I.D., I can't be sure what I can do with it.

    Yeah that's what I'm thinking it is too.

    I had one from a '70 Dodge W300. Almost the same, but mine had eight lugs.

    It is possible that is what it is out of. I wonder if
    it is possible to put the Dodge hubs on it. I know the
    spindles are a bit bigger than my Dana 44 spindles.
    If I can get the 8 lug Dodge hubs on it, then I think
    I can use it, if I can find the Dodge hubs. Once I get to
    8 lug hubs, then I can make disc brakes fit one way
    or the other. Anyone got some Dodge hubs, bearings, and/or
    hubs they can get numbers and/or measurements from for me?
    Thanks.

    Mine looks a lot like this one:
    web page , with a couple
    of differences. First, mine has the shock mounts
    in the front. Second, mine has MUCH larger drums,
    in fact the drums are as large as the wheels, and
    the wheels are 16". Also, this thing has street
    tires on it, not military tires as normally found
    on the M-715.
    Thanks.
