So much for dana axles!

Well as many of you know I have been heading towards dana44 in back and a dana 30 in front, That came to a halt today
as I picked up a 84 toyota pickup for free! so to say the least I am going with toyota axles now. I believe the gears are 4:10 's so that won't have to be swapped out as I am going Auto trans/dual t-case . The only other thing I wouldn't have had to do was get new rims which I now need to. 6 on bla VS 5 on 5.5. I think the toyota axles are longer so I shouldn't have to go to a custom wheel like I had. (2" backspacing currently.) ANyone need a toy 22r
and tranny? It runs (Just has bad gas in it.) no noise,
you would need to be in the N.E. as I don't want to ship it.
Just wanted to pass that along.

Re: So much for dana axles!

No kidding. So you don't need that D30 after all?

Any other way I can repay you for installing the Pony Carb?

Does the Toy share the same bolt pattern as Chevy trucks? If so, I think I have some rims...

Re: So much for dana axles!

Well Mark it looks like I won't need the D30. But I will know after I drain them and pop them apart just to make sure they are good. The bolt pattern in one thing I need to measure and figure out what it is. Don't worry about repaying me for the work right away these things usally
work out.

Re: So much for dana axles!

Toyota axles! Ah, a man after my own heart. How did you get a free truck? I just ordered gears and lockers from NCO and had them sent to your house. Hmm, maybe that was not such a good idea! Check with them for your lockers, Tim got me the gears and lockers for a good price. I think you will be better off with them. What are you gonna do with the centered rearend?

Re: So much for dana axles!

Mark, if Wildweasel doesn't need the rims I might be interested in them. How wide are they and how much do you want for them? Are they steel or aluminum? BTW, yes Chevy 6-bolt rims do share the same bolt pattern as Toyota.

Re: So much for dana axles!

Yea Randy I figured you would be happy! I have been driving
past this poor old rat of a toy PU for the last 2 months with $500 on the windshield, well I drove by yesterday and it had been changed to FREE TO GOOD HOME! so to say the least I went and got it this am. it was a very tricked out truck in its time with a rancho lift kit and about a gazillion shocks all over the place..... (2 on each side up front 3 on back etc... ) talk about the stiffy award! I bet Marks truck will ramp better than this poor thing!
but it has an axle truss in back and a bunch of other neat parts along with the CV driveshaft we use etc,,,

Mark- If the wheels are 8" x 15 sounds good. I will measure the axle and figure out the needed backspacing, but I suspect standard will work. I plan on swapping my 33's
onto the rims as I want to keep them as part of the buildup.
after the last run of the year my 2" backspaced rims will be for sale.

Re: So much for dana axles!

I think they are 15x8, but I will find out tomorrow when I head down to the house. They're black 8 spokes, I bought them for my younger brother, but he never paid me for them. I only have 4 though.

Re: So much for dana axles!

Mark I can allways buy a spare one.They sound good if they are 8"
Randy I think the ones that are on the truck are 6 or 7"
But you can look at them. The nice thing about the bigger
trac of the toy is that we can go back to buying regular rims. And they are much stronger...
re the centered rear diff issue- I am going to see if I can get away with it, but remember it is all goin to be set-up on a new chassis so I will have time to address this with no body on. I know a few guys at the melt had centered
diffs with a regular t-case and they said it was no problem...
