Furd D70 rear axle ????\'s Today at the JY I came across a Ford F-250 diesel with what looks like a D70 rear axle. There is no "70" on any of the webs where I'm used to seeing the designation of Dana axles. But it looks just like the 70 on the axle ID page. On a couple of webs are some numbers (that I didn't write down /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif), but on the bottom right web, is a sideways diamond, like the "dana" diamond, with "NC" inside of it. I pulled a shaft and it is 35 spline. I popped the cover to try to get some numbers from the ring gear and just then the dude comes around telling me to pick it up, they closed 15 minutes ago. So, I didn't get those numbers either. There was a metal tag under two of the cover bolts so I nabbed that. The tag reads: 3.54 VE5TA YA 605247-1 Except, the "V" typed above is actually an upside down triangle. I measured the WMS to WMS at 65". Other than maybe having to change the gears, and having to weld new spring plates and shock mounts, does this look like a good candidate for the K5? I want a D70 not a 14B. Anyone have any info on the D70 and in what years and/or models Ferd used them? Anyone see any reasons I should let this one pass and wait for the next one? Who all has swapped in a 70, and what vehicle did you get it from?
