also, anybody in the phoenix area would know where maricopa is, the former mayor of maricopa lives around the corner from me, he's got a 61 f100 uni short bed i've been meaning to save up some money and go make an offer.
what do the numbers at bottom of decal say..tiny numbers ...I saw a couple of them in the pic...
BTW, is that rusty pup still around or do ya know modelah ?
I think the numbers on the decal are 5301-4, the 3 is questionable because there is damage to the decal in that spot.
As for the other truck, I'm sure it's probably still there, although I haven't been for a drive past his house since I went to take the pics for you. That one would be a big project for someone who didn't have a good cab lying around.
Does anybody have a semi-slick place to put in a CD player? My truck had an AM/FM radio in it, so there is already a hole in the dash, but i don't really feel like cutting up the poor truck any more than it is... unless the dash's are easy to find.
I've looked around and all the f250's I saw had the 6bolt/screw hub in them, Is it even possible to find out from just looking at the hub?
Bill, thanks for the info on the decal.
Highboy, those hubs you have are aftermarket, you cannot determine axle size with the hub. Good hubs though, no need to change them. It is most likely you have a closed knuckle Dana 44. From underneath the front of the truck, look at the steering knuckles, you'll probably see spherical ***** at each end of the axle tube, that indicates a closed knuckle design. Look at the size of the front diff cover plate and compare it to the rear diff cover. If the front one is smaller, it'll be Dana 44, if it's the same then it's a 60, but that'd surprise me.
My friends 64 had those same hubs...D60s front and rear...a real beast offroad as it was used as a wood hauler...I remember helping him rebuild the front end on it...my first, one and only experience with rebuilding a 4WD front end...I also remember the hubs were a pain to lock in/out at times before the rebuild...not much room for mansize fingers...let alone teenage boys like I and my friend were at the time...

Ahhh...the good old days, but Dana 60's front axles were not available in 1964. In fact...
1959/72 F100/250 4WD: Dana 44's only. 1964/72: There are six variations.
Text: Section 40A, parts lists 135-140.
Yeah...I know that 40A is the rear axle parts list section, but that's where Ford put the front axle parts lists from 1959 thru 1972.

[quote=NumberDummy;7323930]While these are WARN hubs, Ford offered them as an optional accessory available either factory installed or at the parts counter.
Good to know. Thanks for that one too. I was thinking of getting rid of the old 3 bolt Dana hubs I have because they are a poor design IMO, nice to know I won't be "modifying" it if I put Warn hubs in. lol. I knew the newer trucks used Warn stuff as my old man had to replace one on an '86 Ranger, he got the replacement from the Ford dealer and it came in a Warn box, didn't know they were a supplier to Ford from the beginning of the 4x4s though. They had some cool products back in the early days like an accessory overdrive for Jeeps.
