72 k20 Dana 44

Rebuilding a Dana 44 on my 72 k20 and came across the drivers side spindle bearing having a brass washer backed up on it and the passenger side not haveing one? Is this correct or has someone worked on this prior to me owning it?

Re: 72 k20 Dana 44

The early disc brake 44's ran a small u-joint and a brass washer, the later ones (73 & up) run a larger u-joint & a plastic one, they don't interchange because different inside diameters. I don't think the brass washers are available. You might check with Quad 4x4 (Torque King) They have some NOS stuff.

I had the same issue with some damaged parts & ended up switching axle shafts to the larger u-joints for better parts availability.

Re: 72 k20 Dana 44

BW thanks for the info... I searched torque king and found the kit with the plastic washer but they also sell the bronze washer. The kit says itís for 73 and up but I cross referenced the bearing that it comes with it and thatís at least the same one for my 72. So I am going to give it a try and replace the plastic washer with the bronze one

Re: 72 k20 Dana 44

I see that bronze spacer misplaced more than correct. At least the times I have had someone else work on my stuff. First thing other than visual damage I look for when hubs won't engage. I see them put to the outside at the lockout end.
