Would all 1979 3/4 ton trucks (c20) have 14 bolt full floaters?
I believe that is a 14bff. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
Yes it is! You can clearly see the "bolt in" pinion support. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
And.....fronm the shock mounts I can also tell you that it is out from under a 3/4 ton. It will bolt up under a K5 with no problems!
almost positive its a 14Bolt FF too
ok, i bought it right now on ebay for $100 bucks. Now I have two of these 3/4 tons.
This guy doesn't know anything about it, but I figure at this price, its worth the gamble. My other one is being shipped to me next week. These things are just not available here in NJ! Guess alot of them have been recycled at this point. I will sell the lesser of the two /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif oh yeah and sshhhhhhhhhhh, dont tell my girlfriend!
The only problem you might have is the gear ratio, all of the two wheel frive 14 bolts i found (before the one I have now) only had 3.73:1 or something like that, so you might have to regear but then you'd be set /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
looks like one to me /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
Yep, that it is. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif Its good to see a post from this side of the universe...especially one w/ a 14bFF for sale. Have the same problem up here w/ certain parts. PM me w/ the lesser spec's and what you want for it, I can drive down and get it. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
Well, I will be selling the one I don't use so I will let you know when I'm ready. Should be within the next two weeks unless this stupid rain never stops. @#$%^& northeast weather.
Wow, three people from the east coast??!?! Don't know where you guys are, but those axles are all over the place here. I got one from a friend who owns a junk yard for 75 bucks. ANother yard has them less than that, just you have to pull them. Guess I should start to advertise these. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif
key words.....friend..owns junkyard. I bought my D60 near syracuse for $800. Here in Northern NJ though, the way of living is new suvs. The market for these axles does not exist so I am sure they they are not saved in yards just due to the lack of demand. It seems that in a rural setting, they tend to be more easily obtained due to an increased truck population. By the way, the axle i just bought is located in Southern NJ.
