1800.00... I figured that was a better deal than buying a used 60 for 1600 which is about what they go for around here. Im also going to use the seat from it in my 70 3/4 ton and the TH400 for my blazer.. The old 44 and the rear corp 14 as well as the transfer case are going to the 4x4 swap meet on the 11th

Congrats on the D60F. Always a nice find. Now that my build up parts list is complete, I'll be doing the gears and installing my detroit in mine. I also have moly inner and outer shafts, 35 spline on both. I also have longfield super joints for the axle joints that i'll be trying out. Hope to have it up and running around soon. It's actually not "down" .. lol, just not built yet.

A pain in the worlds butt, since 1967

If you can't find one and want to replace it with another 203, i got a spare taking up space in the garage.....cheap too. Also a turbo 350 with low miles if anyone else is looking.

So yeah, where-abouts in WA is there a 4x4 swap meet? i'm jonesing for a 14FF in a bad way. Could use a 205 as well.

Nice find there with the CC. I hate to see CC's parted out, but what're ya gonna do? Ideally I'd get my parts from trucks that would be headed for a junkyard, but it doesn't always happen.
