Telling a type of Drive axle

How do you tell what type of rear end you have in a ford truck. Like if its a dana and what kind of rearend it has.

Have a look here:

or if you want to post some pics, or give tag# info, perhaps I or someone else can help you to identify it.

What "Ford truck" is it out of? (Year, Model, 2WD or 4X4)

It is the same truck that is having the fuel/ignition problem. A 1983 Ford F-350 4X4 with a four speed 460, Single rear wheel. the reason we asked is I would like for it to be a posi instead of the limited slip thats in it. I am trying to find a spool/mini-spool for it but I am not sure what rear end is in it. I think it is a Dana 44 but i am not sure.

It should be either a Dana 70 or Dana 60. Here is a listing to help you tell them apart: http://mav.wastegate.net/tech/dana60-70.html

The Dana 60 and Dana 70 use the same cover but the Dana 70 is a beefier axle. You might also look for the numbers "60" or "70" on the housing which most all Dana axles have. Since it is a f-350, I am willing to bet that you got the Dana 70.
