Just pulled a 14b ff out of a '98 2500. Had a great time doing it because the rental guys where all out of pickups and I had to haul it in a minivan, much less a Ford minivan... Now, hear is what I think I know: I have a Series 2 14b that has a ribbed case and a different hub design. The new design is supposed to make it so you don't have to press out the wheel studs to get the drum by itself. This design is supposed to have a hub that isn't machined flat on the back, therefore I can't put on disk brakes. Also, the bearings in the hub need to be pressed out and in to change them. OK, here is what I discovered starting my rebuild... The hub bearings are rattling all over the place, they were loose as soon as I started unscrewing the 6-point star bolt that gos around the yoke (it wasn't very tight at all either) As soon I got the drums off, I noticed the drums were full of fluid, it looks like gear oil leaked around the seals and got into the drums. Now this is what is confusing me the most, my drums were attached to the hubs by pressed on studs! I though it wan't supposed to be that way on a Series 2 14b ff! And the hubs are flat on the back, it looks like it would be no problem putting disks on it! So here are my questions, Am I right about the style of hubs/drums? If I have earlier hubs/drums on a later axle, will that screw up some sort of alignment and cause the gear oil to leak into the drums? This is kind of a dumb question at this point.... What is the difference of putting a series 2 14b on a '91 K5 from a series 1? I have looked all over for some sort of answer, but I couldn't find anything on it. Looks like I'm another dread 14b ff poster....
