Moved it..alway get the 7.3 forums messed up. Just want to know of this is a good deal. The engine overheats and is having a compression problem but it runs till it over heatd. And im really just want the axels and some other goodies and rebuild/mod the engine and plop it in a Bronco eventually
Over all your not getting a horrible deal but 60's are not holding the value they once were. Ive wheeled and dealed on 3 of them in the last year, most $ was 750. For just a bone yard 60 right now I wouldnt give over 500$ complete.
You can probably get 125-150 for the sterling rear and 400 in scrap for the rest. So not a bad deal if your willing to do the work.
You don't have to do anything to the calipers. You can't use your existing calipers unless you can find '95-97 Dana 60 knuckles (I went this route on mine) so use the '94s. The later knuckles are hard to find.
Look for sloppy tie rod ends and drag link ends. Wiggle the axle shaft u joints, if there bad thats about 90 for those two ujoints. With the truck in 2wd and hubs unlocked see how it feels spinning the drive shaft. It should feel pretty smooth, if not bearings and the ring and pinion could be trouble. If you can jack the front up rock the tires in and out from top to bottom if there is skip the ball joints are shot. Also make sure the hubs work they aren't near as cheap as they use to be. I'm sure I've forgot a few things.
Anyway someone can link all these D60 threads together or something? There's like 3 or 4 of these things going now in the OBS section. Not to be rude but everyone's asking the same questions over and over. Getting a bit rediculous...........I'd do this myself but have no idea how to.
No, not with the '94 parts, but that's not what you originally said.
Honestly I didn't have a hard time finding the knuckles. It took two different junkyards to find them, but I did it in a day. Everyone kept telling me how hard it would be, but I tried anyhow succesfully.
