Re: Axle markings/part numbers, where located?
Thank you for the pointer to axle identification guide! From what I can tell, I have dana 44's front and rear (the front pumpkin is identicle to the rear, and both look like picture of dana 44 in identification guide). I attached a picture of the rear diff (guess I can only attach one file) so you guys can tell me if I am wrong about this. The front pumpkin looks the same. I will post picture of front on another reply to this post.
My rear diff was low on fluid, so added 80W-90. I did not know if I had a limited slip or not (I kinda thought I did not)so did not add any additive. When backing the sucker up on some gravel, the drive wheel started to slip and to my surprise, the other kicked in and I spun both. I don't know which I have (Trak-loc or Power-loc) and if both need additive, or just one of the types. Any suggestions?
I do need to take the cover off and put in a new seal (and new pinion seal, and new wheel end seals [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]...another subject for which I will start another post ), so I can get a good look inside...what am I looking for to tell the difference?
