chevy truck rear end identification

I little bit back I was asking about rear end options for my Chevelle. Well since then I have acquired a 67 truck that has a rear end that looks like a Dana 60.

My question is did a 1967 Chevy half ton come with a Dana 60?? Or is this just a GM rear end I don't know about??

I hope to get a picture up soon and get some options on it

Thanks

John

Is it a 4x2 or 4x4? A lot of the 1/2 ton 4x4s of the time had truck 12 bolts in them. At least the later trucks of that body style did. Does it have a drop out style centersection and a removable rear cover? If so, those are Eaton rear ends, though I dont know if they were ever installed in 1/2 tons. A 1/2 ton wont have a Dana 60 in it.

This thread is old but, that axle maybe have 10 bolts but that doesnt mean its a Dana axle, could be a GM 10 bolt, with 7.5 or 8.5. Look on the axle for GM markings.

Not really an old thread , once the thread has been stagnant for 1 or 4 years that is old... LOL

Yeah I found out that it is a 12 bolt. It was so covered in grime and dirt that i missed two bolts. So it is a 12 bolt, but is there any difference between a truck 12 bolt and a car 12 bolt? I seem to remember that there is, but what I Don't know.

Thanks for the help

John

There arn't any differences that i know of, except the gear ratios might be different and maybe different axle shafts for strength. I'm not positive though.

From what I have read, the car 12 bolts tend to be stronger than the truck 12 bolts. As I understand it, there are differences but am not sure what they are...

The car & truck 12-bolts are not the same, and the internal parts WILL NOT interchange. The only things they have in common is the basic design, which they also share with quite a few Ford products.
