ISO: Dana 60 Ring and Pinion 3.73 gears

Hi there,

Im looking for r&p gears for a dana 60 that are 3.73

I figure someone here has done a gear change to 4.10 or higher and has a set that they might want to part with.

Thanks!
-JJ

Re: ISO: Dana 60 Ring and Pinion 3.73 gears

When I had 411's put in my van, the shop removed the old pinion gear with a sledge hammer, totally ruining the gear. When I inquired about this I was told that some times they get stuck and need to be pounded out. My factory manual says there is a tool for this, but the shop obvously took the quicker route. It's possible this was the front Dana 44 though and I may have a good rear gear set, but I won't be back to check for quite a while. (months) If you don't find one, keep posting and I'll check when I get back. If I do have one, it's yours for the cost of shipping.....................

OT: schluchtenflitzer: Did you see the thread on vacuum pump? Make sure you take a spare serpentine belt driven vacuum pump with you on your African trip. (My last one was made in Bulgaria so just take a little Eastern detour on the way to Gibraltar and pick one up.)

Thanks E350 the actual plan is to go the eastern way via Turky, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia...... so Bulgaria is on the way to get to Turky. Hope i have free room than for it

Re: ISO: Dana 60 Ring and Pinion 3.73 gears

OP, have you considered going new. I mean for the cost of the labor (+$200 unless you are doing it yourself) you can get a Dana Spicer ring and pinion with the gearing you want from RockAuto for ~$300.

Is it worth taking the chance installing used gears to save some money now when it might end up being a more expensive repair down the road in some place inconvenient. Just say'n.

Mine were changed to 4.30 right now by John @ quadvan.

I do not know about the condition. And I do not know what John intends to do with it.
But perhaps it is worth giving him a call.
