D60 question

I have finally traded up a D60 to swap into my '97 F250!!!!! It is from a '96 F350 4x4 dually, and it has the extended hubs for the budd wheels. I took the extended hub assemblies off and tried to put the hub/rotor assembly from a '97 250 on the D60 spindle, and the inner wheel bearing will not fit on the spindle. So my question is, can I take the spindles from the 250 and put them on the D60, and use the hub/rotor assembly from the 250? I measured the length of the spindles and how much of the axle that sticks out of the end of the spindle, and they are the same. By my measurements, this should work. Has anyone tried this?

I've got a '97 250 parts truck that I can take a spindle and hub from to mock it up and make sure it works before I tear the '97 I drive apart. I'm gonna do the mock up tomorrow evening after work.

I can't see why that wouldn't work since Ford never made a "dually" D60. The axle was adapted to the dually truck, not designed for it, so I think you should be good to go.

I couldn't get the inner wheel bearing of the 250 hub to go up on the D60 spindle, so that's why I was gonna swap the spindles. I'll try it again before I do anything else.

I got it. I cleaned the spindle of the D60 off real good and could see where it had been smacked with a hammer where the inner wheel bearing fits. Fixed that, and the whole hub/rotor assembly and wheel bearings from the 250 fit right on there. I'm still gonna remove the spindles on the D60 though to replace the axle joints, axle seals, spindle bearings..........I'm soooooo happy to finally be getting a D60 under this truck!!!!!

Hey Bill, are you sure that hub has an extension and not a spacer? My dually has a spacer on the front, pia to get off. If you do find a spacer, we need to talk.

Yeah it's just a spacer I guess, I was just calling it an extended hub. Should be just like what you have on your truck.

All you need to do is remove the spacer/stud extenders and it is the same as a single wheel. Dont need to switch anything.

It must not be the same as yours then. The inside of it houses the wheel bearings and the locking hubs. The rotor bolts to the back and the wheel studs are out on the end. Look at the pics in my D60 swap thread.

It's a '96 axle. I'll sell the hubs.
