    So i finallly got a D60 the other day. Of course it came with out locking hubs but this was in the hub, do i need it?
    Im referring to number 73. Should i keep it for when i get hubs?? Im sticking with 30 spline hubs for now. If i can find some used ones.

    pic is grainy, but IIRC, that is part of the hub assembly. So i'd save it in a plastic bag, just to make sure after you install your new lockouts/slugs

    I'm pretty sure it's the spacer required when using an OE drive slug. If so, it should be roughly 3" in diameter, about 2" long and maybe 1/16" thick.

    These spacers are discontinued by Dana so they are rare and valuable, definitely a keeper. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Yep, that's what it looks like. It's not needed with, at least most, lockout hubs but if you ever want to put the drive flanges back on it's required (I carry the stock flanges as spares in case a hub breaks).

    Looks like the wheel bearing adjustment nut to me. I must be blind.

    Thanks guys ill keep them. I had never seen them before. So now im curious, what keeps the drive flange in the hub??? There is no grove in the hub for a big snap ring like on a D44. Sorry im new to D60's.

    Thanks Brad

    Actually I was confusing it with number 71. I just couldn't read the numbers. I thought number 71 was number 73.

    I just got my hubs together the other day. They use those with the stock slugs. It takes up the space that the locking hubs take up with all the extra crap like springs, and stuff. Definately not something that anybody carries anymore. I was lucky, and got the spacers with my slugs and caps off of Ebay! KEEP IT!
