Axle trouble, need help with identification

I have always thought of the axle in the rear end of my 3/4 ton 4x4 International truck a Dana 60. I have replaced to differential fluid many times and it is clearly stamped Dana into my carrier, along with the production date for the carrier which is december of 1972. The axle shaft itself is a 28 spline and I am looking to get 4.56 gears and a detroit or similar locker.

I was looking at a carrier on ebay and asked the question how many splines it took, and I told the person my axle shaft was 28 spline and he told me there wasn't a 28 spline Dana 60.

Back to my original dilemma, is there a 28 spline Dana 60 axle, or is this a way to identify it as the unfavorable Dana 61?

Re: Axle trouble, need help with identification

The axle number is usually cast into one of the cross supports by the cover, I forget which one. There should also be some numbers stamped into the axle tube on the right side. It might be possible that you have a D44, which looks similar but smaller.
