Awesome and thank you as always. I got the check valves and I figured out their flow direction as well. Now, headed to NAPA to figure out vacuum tube size.

Don't know where else to post this.
I have a pair of 2015 F350 sterling axles soon to go under my 2002 ext 7.3 van with MG's kit. I was/am also toying the idea of putting a ZF6 manual transmission in place of the 4R100.
My question how would I send a signal for the speedo? the 2003 ZF6 doesn't have sender (that I know of). and the Sterling doesn't have a wheel on the ring gear, it does have VSS sensors (2 I believe)

You are probably best off using a either a FTE thread to figure that out, as that is in the realm of a Transmission swap. I know the VSS sensor is on the Transfer case of the NP273 for the 5R110W Transmission (I know, auto and different trans set up), but the point is that the VSS may be on the Transfer case, not the transmission.

Here are two I found https://www.powerstroke.org/threads/...mplete.159870/

The axle still has the cast pad for the sensor. You can take the tone wheel and sensor from an earlier axle, drill the holes for the sensor and install the tone ring on the diff. Check out Sky's Offroad Design's Facebook post on it.

Is there any concern that the sterling e-locker could disrupt the magnetic signal? It would be very close by.

Adding to the knowledge for the 10.5 Sterling E-Locker. I needed a new green connector on the van side. The part number is WPT-829. eBay has the best price for it. https://www.ebay.com/itm/254291226022 I wish I could easily find the molex part number as it's simple connector and spending $25 is a bit ridiculous.

Have a link to the Facebook post? Interested in doing exactly this to restore abs functionality to my 2002 E350 w/ 2014 F250 10.5 sterling rear axle.

Edit - https://www.facebook.com/10456502961...123925139/?d=n

Looks doable. Pull out the diff and add a tone ring from a 10.25. Then drill, tap and mount the sensor. This might be a spring job after I take the van on a few trips.

Tone ring part number E7TZ4B409A
Yukon makes one for $120 but others can be found for 60-80 or used for ~20.
What I donít know yet is whether to use the truck part
Sensor part 4L3Z9E731AA or 6L3Z9E731
or van part
F85F9E731AB, XC2Z2C205BB.

I suspect the van part should be fine and avoid making a new connector. Thatís tbdÖ

Iíve got my system (SOTF hubs + nv271) assembled as described and working. Iím finding that with the check valve in there after the solenoid, the hubs stay locked-in even after I disconnect vacuum (makes sense). Anybody have any experience with leak-down times to get back to disconnected hubs?

How do you know where to precisely drill the sensor hole? If you mess it up (wrong location) would lose the option of a sensor in the axle.

I was thinking of marking the location from the inside. Then drilling a pilot hole from the inside and using that to drill the larger hole from the outside.
