Dana 60 interchange

I have a 1977 F250 4x4 highboy (narrow frame divorced xfer case). A few years back a wheel bearing failed on the rear axle, and friction welded itself to the spindle. I cut the old bearing off and reshaped the spindle with a file until the new bearing fit. I haven't had any problems with it, but it's always worried me.

I bought a bare d60 housing with the carrier caps from a guy for $50. I looked up the bom number for it and it came up 1971-72 f250 hd 4x2 pick up. The bom # is 603196 11. Will this housing work in my truck?

I would like to got to my local u pull wrecking yard and get a carrier from another truck and rebuild it, what years will interchange with this housing. I think my truck has 30 spline axles and would like to reuse them as well as the backing plates and brakes.

I'm also thinking about looking for a powerlok. I know there not the best but I will be using the truck to hual a camper and winter driving, not much off road.

Mike

i'm curious as to what your concerns are about the original axle?
is it that it got to hot and is no longer strong enough?

I guess I'm just worried it might spin the bearing and weld to the spindle again. I'm planning on packing a large camper around and do not want to have problems far from home.

I'd had some problems a few years back and peened the spindle to make the bearing fit better, but I can't remember what the problem was. then last year the seal up against the spindle started leaking and I found a speedy sleeve to fit it, but its leaking a little again.

if the seal is leaking that probably an indication something is not right.
sounds like your starting to get a new axle together might be a good idea

So any idea on the carrier interchange? I would think 73-79 ford for sure, and I'm thinking early 80's ford, maybe.
