Dana 60 questions

Hello! I recently picked up a 1972 C-20 that has a pinion seal leak along with both axle seals leaking. I started on the hub seals and brake wheel cylinders that are leaking (down the rabbit hole). Anyway when I took the hub off the spindle I noticed that it was missing the thrust washer was missing (according to the 1972 chevy truck chassis service manual 10 to 30). I spent the last few days searching the web trying to find one with no luck, so I decided to check the Dana/Spicer web site and ran across their publication X510-8 DSD, After searching through it I came across a Model 60 rear axle exploded view which doesn't show a thrust washer. Bottom line... Do I need one? Thanks for your help.

No "Hub Thrust Washer" on my '72 C20. Just follow the Dana/Spicer view and directions for hub nut torque and end play. That's what I did.

Thanks. If you're having any problems finding parts through your local auto parts, Torque King is a great resource.....https://torqueking.com/
They answer their phone too. At least every time I called.
Also, Specifications 5, Section 4, Rear Suspension of your Service Manual has the wheel bearing adjustment specs. for the DANA 60 hubs.

Re: Dana 60 questions

tighten hubs down TIGHT then back nuts off until it spins fairly easy. use permatex ultra black silicone for axle seal. fill hubs with lube of your choice b4 axle install , do 1 side at a time, jack it up on 1 side a little to get hubs filled enough.
