Diff Between a TTB D44 & TTB D50 ??

Is there any visual difference between the two ? What is the exact difference between the 44 & 50 ? Thanks !

8 lugs, leaf springs, and a "50" cast into the bottom of the D50 chunk. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] Other than that, they're virtually indistinguishable! [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

supposedly there were some leaf-sprung 8 lug d44 TTB's, which means the casting number is all you have to use to distinguish them at first glance [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Ya ok , I just came in from being underneath the truck and I dont see any 44 or 50 stamp on the chunk . Just the tag on the front that says some numbers ( cant read the top row) but the rest says EOTA - JE . I do have 8 lugs though [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

44- ujoints use standard 44 c-clips, ie on the "backside of the yoke"

50 - ujoints use external clips just like a d/s

Seems to me the simplest way would be this: Is it leaf sprung, or coil sprung? If its coil, its definitely a D44.

Didnt the D50's have different pivot points, too?

Yeah, the D50 beams are a bit larger and slightly different in shape.

No, because some light duty F250s received an 8 lug version of the D44 TTB (called the D44HD TTB) which was leaf sprung.

Ford Thinking?

Nah. They left it up to us to do the thinking. I think we, the re-engineers, should get a raise.
