Got the same question. My dad has one that hasn't moved under it's own power for a decade and a half. I crawled through the weeds and just before something scampered up my leg, I noticed "80" or "60" stamped on the webbing. Could this be a Dana 60? Did they make an 80? What is this?
Thanks. I found a 1110 IH pickup sitting by a guys shop along with three older scouts but of course he won't sell me the axles. The front axle on the pickup was a closed knuckle design. Are those type of axles any good? They look as if the would be hard to work on.
Just a word of caution, check carefully as not all IH pickups came with the Dana 60 rear. I have axles out of a 1975 IH pickup under my CJ-7, and both front and rear are Dana 44s. LIke most auto makers, IH designated their trucks as half-tons, three quarter-tons, etc. Don't get me wrong, the Dana 44 is definitely strong and plenty stout for what I wanted, but if you have your heart set on a Dana 60, you might be surprised if you aren't careful.
I believe in the pickups the only 60 they used was a fullfloater so look for the 8 lug axles front and rear. The front will be the d44 with the 8 lug pattern. If they are not 8 lug they're probably both 44s.
