Re: Dana 44? \'75 3/4 ton IHC
I have a 73' 3/4 ton pick-up, and assuming that the running gear is the same, the front axle is not a dana 44. It is an FA-somthin' or other. When I replaced the wheel bearings they put about 30 different axles underneath these trucks so it really just depends. It is a tough axle though.
The transfer case is a divorce mounted NP205 which is a militarily proven tough piece of gear driven cast iron. Horrible low range though.
