Where os this vent tube located?

It's (on the Dana 60 in a van anyways) on the driver's side center of the axle bore. It looks like a piece of fuel hose coming up out of the axle bore and there's also the rear brake line T in the same area.

NO, a Dana 60 is way different than the Sterling 10.25 found in pickups

I know the axles and differential are much different... wasn't talking about that. I was talking about the spindles and hubs including seal. I don't have a pickup, but from what I've seen reading around on forums I believe the trucks look similar to what I have:
-8 -- 14mm bolts holding the end of the spindle (free floating) to the hub
-splined spindles that pull out
-under that a ratcheting nut that requires a special socket to remove/install
-The hub (drum or disc on later models) has a press in lip seal on the rear to seal it to the spindle and hold in the gear oil

Where is the vent tube on the trucks (Sterling 10.25 or 10.50)? Is it not between the pumpkin and the drivers wheel (coming out of the top of the axle bore)?

With the e-series Dana 60, do you have to remove the axle shaft to remove the drum like the earlier ones found in pickups, or does the drum slide right off after a tire removal?

Axle vent is in drivers side axle tube

Axle vent is in drivers side axle tube (what was mentioned in my earlier post). Also on this unit the drum comes off right after the rim is removed (no need to pull the spindle). But the hub does not come off without pulling the spindle of course.

I get the impression (called a Dana supplier) that the hub assembly is a Ford part (not Dana). So I figured it would be the same regardless of Sterling or Dana axles. But not owning any Sterling equipped vehicles I could be wrong. Seems like pictures I've seen of trucks (pre disk) also seem to look like what I have regarding wheel hub/seal/etc.

So how do o tell what axle is on my pickup? Sterling or dana or ford? The napa guy said ford when he looked at it to get the correct seals. Ford 10.25.

Look in your door for the tag. It gives the axle code. Then you can look it up.

But for the most part the trucks have the Sterling 10.25 or 10.5.

You would be wrong. Dana parts and sterling parts do NOT interchange.

You have a sterling 10.25 because all 3/4, & 1 ton pickups from 86-97 used them exclusively
