rear differential identification

Hi, i need help identifying my rear differential on a 82 F-250. The tag on the differential reads as follows; 3.54 E2TA-BKA 605040 6 L S .The tag was difficult to read , i believe i have it correctly. Thanks.

Sounds like a Dana 60 3.54:1.

It definately shouldn't be a 9", as they were only put in half ton trucks and some cars.

It's probably not going to be a Ford 10.25" because they weren't introduced until '83.

I hesitate to say for certain without seeing it, because a lot of the time you just don't know what's under these things after 20 years.

Try this link. You may find it useful.

That's a Dana 61 Full Float, 3.54 ratio according to Dana's website. But it also shows to be for the F-350 instead of an F-250.

Got info here:http://www2.dana.com/expert/wc.dll?DSD~deabill~4~

Check it out.
