63 wagoneer

What rear axle is in my wagoneer? What did they offer back then open, limited slip or a locked rear diff? Is it possible to swap into my 89 comanche? Thanks Dennis Im sure its a 63-64 wagoneer cause it has the 230 tornado, think those were the only years for that.

Sure the 44 is stronger than the 35C but realize that the version on your wagoneer carries some obsolete and hard to find parts, such as the 19 spline axle shaft. It's also a 2-piece design. Later D44's in the 70's had 1-piece shafts with 30 splines.

Re: 63 wagoneer

Hey chris, sorry to step off on a bit of a tangent but do you know what kind of axle they put in the 27af(front) and 44 on the 70 wagons? If not is there an easy way to find out? I'd sure hate to snap an axle in the boonies and find out I got the wrong fix it parts!

63-71 solid front axles on the wags were d27s, on the 72 and 73, the closed knuckle d30 was used. but 72 is an iffy year...some may have the d27 while others have the d30.

the 74 model year started the installation of the front d44 open knuckle on the wags...

If it's a 27, the number 27 should be cast into the front of the differential case.

Re: 63 wagoneer

I guess I didn't state the question right. I know it has the 27af and 44 rear but was wondering if it would have the 19 spline or 30, one piece or two?

Re: 63 wagoneer

Oh sorry, 27 is a 19-spline as well as the 44. I don't know when FSJ's went to a 1-piece D44 rear with 30 splines, but if you have a 2-piece on your rear, it will be a 19-spline. You can tell a 2-piece by teh big castle nut on the axle flange.
