Rear PowerLoc In Front

Can you use a rear Powerloc diff in the front? My Scout is a '62, and both differentials are Dana 27's I believe.

Re: Rear PowerLoc In Front

They should both be Dana 27 , you could use the locker up front but I belive you will get some skipping of the front wheels in turns as a locker will lock up one wheel that is not getting traction and send all the power to the other wheel. there where 2 types of front ends used one type had a drive flange having a splined ID to mate with the axle shaft splines. The 2nd has a drive gear splined both internally and externally. as for taken out the powerlocker from the rear and puttting in the front housing, It might work as long as the splines line up too the locker from the front axles. If this dose you will have climing little scout . I just have a powerlocker in the rear and limted slip up front. I hope that it works for you good luck and let me know if you do it. keep on Scouting
