Parts for Standard Duty Closed Knuckle Dana-Spicer 44 Front Axles in 1959-1975 Ford 4x4 Trucks

We stock a good selection of parts for 1959 to 1975 Ford 4x4s with standard-duty Dana 44 closed knuckle front axles. For the 1959 model year, Ford introduced the first factory built Ford 4x4 pickup which was available in both F-100 1/2 ton and F-250 3/4 ton drivetrains. The new, affordable, factory 4x4s replaced the previous Marmon-Herrington conversions of 4x2 to 4x4 trucks and allowed Ford to better compete with Dodge, GM, IHC, Jeep, and Studebaker all of whom had previously introduced factory built 4x4 pickups. The standard-duty Dana-Spicer Model 44 axle, which has 8 Bolt Knuckle Ball Seals, was used for all F-100 4x4s from 1959 to 1966, and for light duty F-250 3/4 ton trucks from 1959 through 1975. In 1961, an optional, Heavy-Duty version of the Dana-Spicer 44 front axles with 12 bolt Ball Seals was offered for the F-250.

Ford F-100 Closed Knuckle axles were replaced by a King Pin type open knuckle Dana 44 front axle during the 1966 model year. Ford continued to use standard duty Model 44 closed knuckle axles right through the 1975 model year on light duty F-250 4x4 trucks. Ford was the last U.S. vehicle manufacturer to use closed knuckle axles on 3/4 ton models. For 1976, all Ford F-250 4x4 trucks would have either an open knuckle Dana 44 (Regular Cab) or Dana 60 (Crew Cab).

Axle Shaft Seals and Seal Kits for Inner Axle Shafts

top_page
product note
Ford used both one piece and two piece Inner Axle Shaft Oil Seals in closed Knuckle Dana 44 front axles. Dimensionally, the two types are interchangeable and by the early 1970's, all the axles were built with the one piece seal that combines the Seal and Guide into a single unit. I always replace the two piece Seal with the one piece as I believe it has greater sealing ability plus longer life. With a closed knuckle axle, seal seepage from the differential often goes unnoticed until the a catastrophic ring and pinion failure occurs because the errant lube ends up in the knuckle ball. These Seals are tricky to install so I recommend you also order our optional installation tooling. Axle disassembly including differential removal is required to replace the Seals
QU42015 OE Type Inner Axle Shaft Seal Is a narrow seal that requires you reuse your original stamped metal axle shaft guide in 1916-1972 axles. We still carry these seals for the vehicle owner that wishes to restore their vintage 4x4 with original type seals

Axle Universal Joints

top_page
product note
The Closed Knuckle Ford Dana 44 axle uses solid cross, inside lock-up universal joints without seals that are designed to be bathed in a semi-liquid lubricant from inside the closed knuckle balls. By today's standards, these u-joints are way undersized, but given the lighter vehicle weights and modestly powered engines of the late 1950's to mid 1970's, the joint size was probably adequate

Closed Knuckle Parts

top_page
product note
We stock the regular service closed knuckle parts for your 1959-1965 Ford F100 or light duty F-250 4x4 with a standard closed knuckle Dana 44 front axle which will have 8 bolt Knuckle Ball Hemisphere Seals. With a Closed Knuckle axle, the axle universal joints and king pin bearings are lubricated by very heavy oil or a viscous grease that will flow when the axle shafts rotate. A large, multi-piece seal is bolted to the backside of the steering knuckle to keep lubricant in and water out. On poorly maintained closed knuckle axles or axles equipped with lockout hubs that are rarely used in 4x4, the upper king pin bearing and axle universal joint can suffer from lack of lubrication. The Ball Seals will usually weep some lubricant especially when standard gear oils are used as a lubricant. Submersion of the axle under water or condensation from temperature changes can cause moisture to build up inside the enclosed ball and lead to corrosion damage and part failures

Differential and Pinion Bearings (Individual)

top_page
product note
There was a differential Side Bearing change which according to Dana was effective with the 1967 model year. My Ford parts books do not give a year break and my memory is a bit hazy on which years took the small ID or Large ID Bearings, but I believe 1967 was the change over year.
All bearings are not created equal for fit or durability, so we only stock first class, long lasting, Timken® Differential and Pinion Bearings for your Dana front axle. Timken® was and is a a major original equipment supplier of top-notch bearing components to Dana Spicer. Since I first started rebuilding Dana axles in the mid 1970's, I have found Timken® Bearings to be the most consistent in relation to the published dimensions of any bearing on the market which makes rebuilding an axle right the first time a WHOLE lot easier!

Differential Bearing and Seal Kits

top_page
product note
Most 1959 to 1965 Ford F150 1/2 ton truck, and 1959-1975 F-250 3/4 ton trucks with closed knuckle Dana 44 Front Axles used part time transfer cases and have lockout hubs. With a part time transfer case and lockout hubs, the axle shafts and differential parts do not rotate, so extreme diff/pinion bearing wear is rather rare except in work trucks. However, the flip side is water condensation in the diff has a tendency to cause rust and pitting of the bearings. If your vintage Ford has been used a lot in 4x4 mode or parked outside and subject to temperature changes, there is a good chance that significant wear or water damage may have occurred on your differential and pinion bearings. When you replace the bearings, do not forget to replace the inner axle shaft oil seals.

Gaskets and Gasket Makers

product note
The original Dana 44 differential covers are stamped from thin gauge material with embossed flanges which were made for use with a cut gasket. If you desire, you can combine a gasket with a very thin film of RTV on each side, but using RTV sealant without a gasket is NOT recommended. We stock both Ultra Gray RTV Sealant and genuine Dana Diff Cover Gaskets
