I can pick up a set of scout axles that are in a '77 Scout with disc brakes and a v8 eng. I hope the axles are 44's.
the other set are sitting in a shed, The only info. I can get, is that they came out of a Scout that a v8 and disc brakes and only 1800 miles.
Is there any markings or stamps that can help me to determan if they are44's or not.
Thanks For All Your Help

If it's from a late '70's scout all is well. That's all they used to my knowledge. However, there should be a "44" cast into the main diff casting somewhere on one of the webs. If you need more info, I got two sets & I can check & tell you exacty where -- but I have heard that this location varies.

On most Dana 44s there is a 44 cast into the lower right rib if looking at the pumpkin straight on. Also the rear is definitly a 44 so by comparing the size of the pumpkins it should be obvious if the front is a 44 or a 30 Good LUck

Check out this site:

Basically, '75 & up used the 44 w/disks. '74 was a transition year, about 30% D30 used. Also, I believe every Scout D30 I've seen had drums? Granted, IH mixed & matched alot, so I wouldn't bet on it.
