Differential Parts

product note
It has been so many years since I worked on a 1960's era Dodge W300 rear axle that I can not recall from memory the axle shaft spline counts. As far as I can tell from the Dodge parts books, Dodge used Dana 70s with 23 spline axle shaft in the W300 up to 1968. However, Dana shows the 23 spline was replaced by the 35 spline by 1967, so if you need diff parts or axle shafts, ALWAYS verify what you have before ordering parts

Gaskets

product note
In the mid 1970's Dana made a differential cover design change to heavy gauge covers with flat mating flanges. Unlike the previous, thin gauge covers with embossed flanges which were made for use with a cut gasket, the new design, thick gauge covers are designed for sealing with RTV. If you desire, you can still use a gasket with the new type cover by combining the gasket with thin films of RTV. We stock both Ultra Gray RTV Sealant and genuine Dana Gaskets
