Hey,
I'm from the chevy board but I have a Dodge question for ya'll. I'm helping my buddy with his '69 charger and was just wondering how I can tell what axle he has? It's 11 bolts and it has an 8 on the axle a AAPW, casting number(can't remember the number exactly) and a C18 or something like that...oh and a 117. All kinds of numbers, are these going to tell me anything about the axle? It would be nice to know what the axle is cause he has a parts car and I need to know what axle to rebuild for him. The one on his parts car almost looks bigger but I did not look very close. Any help or direction you could give me would be so greatly appreciated.

This mud is for you!

Actually it came with a 383:( My '73 Charger has a 440, I built the $hit outa that thing. But anyway, so this would meen it has a 8 1/4 then? The other car he has is with out a motor and is still has the rear that comes out the front. How can I tell what rear end he has with out knowing what the motor was in that car? How hard is it to find a DANA 60 for this beaut of a car? I told him that is what he wants but I have not done any research to find out how hard or easy it is to come across this. Thanks for your help man. It's going to be one sweat a$$ ride when we are done. He's going the "General Lee" rout, he is doing all the body work and I get to do the wrenching. He is too concerned with the body and not enough with what is under the hood and his drive train. I am going to build this thing right for him. Any other help and info you could give me would be sooooo appreciated.

If it's got the cover on the back of the diff it could still be a Dana 60. Find a 3/4 ton Dodge pickup and compare them. The back cover should be identical. The 8 1/4 is quite a bit smaller and like Deano says, no good for any hi-po applications.

I've got a 1967 Coronet with a 383 that has the 8 3/4 under it. More than likely it will have the 8/34. I don't think the 8 1/4 would ever hold up to a 383.

An 8 3/4 has a removable pumkin so that should be pretty obvious. If it has a back cover then it is NOT an 8 3/4

Thanks for the posts. I had a chance to go look at them again and they are definatley 8 3/4. I have an interchange guide at home that I forgot all about and that pretty much told me what it is. I think we'll be keeping the 8 3/4 and just build it real tough. Thank you all for your help.
