I have a question about the rear end that came out of my 63 Champ pickup.
It clearly has the casting #44 in the right place on the rear end. So... I
think it is a model 44... it has 4.27 ratio marked on the tag. The Shop
manual designates the rear end for 8E5 1/2 ton trucks as a spicer #2211...
does anyone know of any relationship between Dana and Spicer??? what gives
here with the difference in numbers? Maybe it is just my limited knowledge
of differentials... Or maybe my truck's differential was not factory...?
