    Go to page two of my truck web shots and there is a view of a front diff. , it is part # 35
    You will have to play with the view to make it large enough to see clearly.
    Hope it helps you out /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    BTW nice penny lol.

    That is the washer/shim from behind one of the spiders gear in a 14bff. In this picture, near the top, is another example..

    I've seen a bazillion of those things when after welding ALOT of 14b's. I have never seen a 14b where atleast one of those things wasn't fawked up in some way. If you happen to need another one, I could probably dig one up for ya. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif Well I'm glad to hear its not a bad (well at least uncommon) thing.... We pulled the cover off the 14bolt and I notided it had alot of sledge in the bottom. I took my finger and wiped the sledge out and got one half of that washer... /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif we looked and looked to see where it would come out of. Then we got thinking maybe since this axle has the spacer and 4.56's on a 4.10 carrier maybe it had a gov loc and popped and they put in the open without cleaning the inside out real good /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
    So where would this piece exit the carrier at?

    This is my $10.50 eBay win /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif
    [​IMG]
    It's the narrow dually axle, so I'm still trying to figure out if I'm going to use it or not, I just couldn't let this pass on ebay. There was an opening bid of 10$, then about a day and half till the end I made a $12 bid and it ended at $10.50 (the second bid /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif)


    So what do you think? Weld on some disk brake brackets out on the spindle and swap to SRW hubs? I was hoping it was the wider of the two dually axles then I would have just put it in the truck with dually hubs for now and had the rear 72" and the front 69-70" (10bolt). But this dually is the 63" WMS axle (the cab and chassie version I think).

    Carrier shim was my first guess but it was too small, then the spider shim/washer was my second guess, but I wasn't sure /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
    I didn't see a place large enough for it to come out of the carrier /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    [/ QUOTE ]

    My guess would be through one of the windows in the carrier where you can see the side gears. I'd have to look at a carrier, but IIRC, half of one of those things should fit through there.

    That looks almost exactly like the piece I found in my 14BFF upon teardown. /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    I bought replacements from the stealership. I think I paid around $15-20 for a pack of six, which is convenient since you only need 4 in the entire diff. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif
