I found a HP dana 44 housing out of a 79 bronco. Would this work for future project ?
Unless you are going to use the Ford factory raduis arms that was also on that same Bronco,no it would not be a good HP44 to use since the wedges can not be cut off and the axle tube on the passenger side is 2 peices.Totally skip if it has 1/4" axle tubes.
The ideal Ford HP44 using Chevy brakes(converted from drum brakes) is ones from '73-'75 F100/F150.If wanting to retain the Ford disc brakes you want a '76-'77 F100/F150 HP44.The drum brake version can be had for cheap,in the area of $150 for a complete axle,the disc brake HP44 runs about 2-3 times that complete in most cases.
So that is considered a "Full width" axle, correct?
what about a dodge ram front d44 and crysler 9.25 combo for 300$
The RAM D44 is low pinion and has a 2 peice pass side tube with a 2 peice pass side axle with vacuum disconnect,and worse it uses unit bearings.The 9.25 rear is,well no real aftermarket support.
found a 74 f100 d44 in an alabama junkyard today it already is out fitted with 4.10s
It'll work but if your planning a SFA swap 4.10's is far from low enough,more like 4.88's or 5.13's are needed.
yea kinda figured that. it was paired up with a 390v8 and 4 speed tranny
