I bought the whole F-350 parts truck from a logging company ,and towed it home on a trailer.The other day I got a chance to strip it,and over the weekend,I took the front end apart to check it over before installing it in mine.I don't want to take mine apart until I one ready to go back in it.
I find that the pinion bearing is bad,the u-joints are toast, needs axle seals too. BUT here is the problem,they run it with a bad wheel bearing for a long time I'd say,and it has chewed up the outer stub axle.
Here is where I need some help.Does anyone know if the stub axles from the Dana 50 with fit ?My truck has perfect stub axles.I have looked on line,but some say they will,and others say they won't.One guy said the u-joint size is different,while another guy says they will fit because he has done it.
I have been into Fords and Ford trucks for close to 30 years now,but I have never compared those two parts.Is there anybody here that can give me some info on this? PLEASE!
Thanks for any help in advance.
