Dana 44

I just picked up a Dana 44 front out of a 1976 wagoner. Now I need to round up the parts for the outers.. Can I use the wagoner spindle and caliper and caliper mounting bracket? Then just look for ford hub, roter and internal lock outs? And what year Ford am I looking for? Can I use the wagoner rotor?

Thanks Bill

Bill, I just used the outers off my Dana 30 on my Scout 44. Yours should do the same.
BTW Did you get your 300 clocked?

Re: Dana 44

The answer to all of your questions is on this site.
Bookmark it, it is well worth having if you own a D44.
Great info, on steering also.

Re: Dana 44

The clocking came out pretty good. I can almost go with a flat skid plate now. I"am glad I did'nt buy that clocking ring fron 2guys. I had to put two studs in the case because on my Novak adaper had webs right where I needed to drill. I'am working on a Scout 44 rear now with Detroit and 4:10 gears. I'am just getting the parts together for the front now. 1976 Wagoner Ford outers. Hope to be ready for the Rubicon and others this summer, but working on a Jeep in the winter out side stinks. I know the others on this board would say I don't know what winter is since I live in Calif. but cold is cold.

Re: Dana 44

I used D30 outers as well. I added alloy outer shafts from Warn but everything else is D30. I guess it depends on how hard you are going to wheel. I wheel pretty hard and have had no problems so far.

H8, thanks for the link.

Re: Dana 44

well i take it you are going to 5 lug pattern.. on that 76... you will just need the ford wheel bearing hub.. rotor and lock out hub.. any ford d44 will work.. 85 or older i believe.. after 85 or so they went to automatic locking hubs.. any ford will do also.. 1/2 ton.. F100.. bronco.. 3/4 ton is 8 lug so stay away from those..

that d30 crap only works on scout d44's.. since they have smaller outers than a true d44..
