    I just got my D60 in and it didn't have any hubs on it, but came witht he drive flanges. All I could find were the caps and the slug itself. So my questions are as follows

    1. Which was do the slugs go in, I had them in both ways, with the flat face facing out, or with the small protruding stub thing facing out?

    2. I currently have them witht he smooth flat face facing out. If this is wrong, how the hell do I get them out? Drill two tiny holes and use screws like on a locking hub?

    3. Shouldn't I have a snap ring or something else to keep the slugs from popping out?

    4. Should I be packing these things with grease when I install them?

    5. Are the cover/caps just press on?

    Thanks!

    Ok,
    I don't own a D60, but i'll give it a try.
    1. The small prutruding part goes out.
    2. Hit the axle shaft with a hammer lightly and it jars the slug loose. Pliers on the small sticking out part to pull on it.
    3. Snapring=YES !
    4. Not really, but you can if you want. As long as the stuff behind them has grease.
    5. Covers just presses on. You can use a little RTV to seal the grease in and water out.

    Hardware stores..... I don't know the size. Just measure and buy that size plus the one above and below it.

    My Dana 60 parts manual shows them as follows. The spacer goes in first, then the Gear with the small, shouldered portion facing out. Then the snap ring. The Dana part number or the snap ring of a 30 spline outer shaft is 37330. Then the cap goes on.

    I've only installed the Warn Drive Flanges and they had the slug go in but with a few spacers behind it then it had a snap ring on the groove on the stub shaft then the big snap ring on the hub that held the slug in place. Then it had the cover which was held on with 3 cap screws. Never dealt with stock style ones...

    Sorry, no part number listed for the spacer. My diagram also shows a pressure spring for another application instead of the spacer. But, no part number for it either.
