    Does anyone know what the difference in pinion height is between the standard D60 and a high pinion D60?

    I'll take the measurement any way you have it, as a centerline-to-centerline difference (inches), or somehow referenced as a distance from the top of the axletube??, etc.

    Greg,
    PM a guy named "hipinion" he has a brand new boyce equipment HP D60 in his garage awaiting install. I'm sure he would be more than happy to take a measurement for you. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I am going by memeory but I think it is 3-1/8" from center line in each case . I can verify this later if no one else knows for sure .

    I believe that 3" is real close. I would need to measure mine to be sure and it is snowing at the moment. Also, keep in mind pinion angle as this can help a lot if you are building a unit.

    Greg, I've got my Dynatrac catalog here and it shows the centerline of the pinion in accordance to the centerline of the axle shaft or tube for the high pinion at 1 1/8" ABOVE where the standard D60 would be 1 1/8" BELOW the axle shaft centerline.

    Wes is correct - my books show the same distance . The older I get the worse my memory gets . /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Wes,

    So am I understanding your description right......the centerline to centerline difference for the pinion inputs is 2 1/4"???
