    I just picked up a new parts Dana 44 for $75(using all but the housing, gears, and a carrier) and it has Selectros on it. I like the look of them. Are they worth keeping? Would help me instead of buying new hubs. Such a thing as a rebuild kit for them? Don't know taht anything is wrong with them just be nice to have new hubs.

    Selectros are supposed to be real good hubs, I would stick with them for now.

    I plan to. They just look classic.

    Are they the ones that have a knob you can grab to turn them? I've got 1.5 hubs like that. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif They came with an axle that I bought, but the "knob" is missing from one of them. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    the whole visible part of the hub is a knob.

    Yep! That's the ones I have. They do have quite a rugged look about 'em. I wish the guy hadn't lost the knob from one of these. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif
