Parts for Dana-Spicer Closed Knuckle Model 70 Front Axles in 1961-1982 IHC 4x4 Trucks

International first offered Dana Spicer Model 70 Closed Knuckle Front Axles as a cataloged factory option for C-Series models in 1961. For production 4x4s, you will find Model 70 axles in both 1 ton Class 3 and 2 ton Class 6 vehicles. Other than the axle housings, axle shafts, wheel end, and steering components, most parts are interchangeable for all years and models. 1 ton 4x4s with the Dana 70 front axle were available in both single and dual rear wheel configurations. 1 ton models include: C-130 (1961-1962), C-1300 (1963-1964), D-1300 (1965), 1300A (1966), 1300B (1967), 1300C (1968), 1300D (1969-1970), 1310 (1971-1973), and 200 (1974-1975). The 2 ton trucks we have seen were all 160 or 1600 models with dual rear wheels and Gross Vehicle Weights in the 18,000 to 21,000 pound range. Most of these larger trucks were originally purchased by public or government agencies. International ceased production of Light Line (under 2 ton) vehicles on April 28, 1975. Dana continued to build Model 70 Closed Knuckle front axles for International Loadstar 1600 4x4s until 1979 which is the last year we can verify factory production of the 1600 4x4, but many aftermarket catalogs list the 1600 4x4 Dana 70 front axle through the 1982 model year. It is quite possible, International had enough axles on hand to continue building Dana 70 equipped 2 Ton 4x4s for another three years.

Axle Shafts

product note

International used different front axle shafts for 1300 and 1600 Dana 70 front axles. Both vehicles have 1-1/2"-35 spline inner shafts, but of course the 1600 shafts are longer. The 1300 has a 1-3/8" 21 spline outer axle shaft. 1600 series trucks use a 1-1/2" 35 spline outer shaft.

Closed Knuckle Parts

top_page
product note

We stock the regular service closed knuckle parts for your 1961-1975 Regular Cab Ford F-250 4x4 with a closed knuckle Dana 44 Heavy Duty front axle which will have 12 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

Over the years, Dana has primarily used Timken bearings when building their axles. For long life and dimensional consistency, Timken bearings are unmatched by any other brand of bearing I have used rebuilding axles over the past 30+ years in the business. When you are a shade tree mechanic dealing with a diff and pinion rebearing job without all the fancy gauging tools we have, you always want your new bearings to be the same overall thickness as the original bearings were when the axle was built so your pinion depth, pinion preload and backlash are within the tolerance limits when you are done with the job. Timken bearings will almost always deliver that type of accuracy, plus the steel quality and surface finish is the world's best

Wheel Bearings and Seals

product note

International offered optional Dana 70 Front Axles for both 1 ton and 2 Ton 4x4 standard production trucks starting with the C-130 1 Ton in 1961. Dana 70 FA52 axles from 4x4 1 ton C-130 (1961-1962), C-1300 (1963-1964), D-1300 (1965), 1300A (1966), 1300B (1967), 1300C (1968) models have different wheel bearings and seals compared to 1969-1975 1 Ton FA52 axles. The 1961 to 1968 axles may have either 6 bolt (6x7-1/4" bolt circle, used with all EXCEPT 18" wheel) or Budd 5 bolt (used with 18" wheel) front wheels depending upon the tire size the truck was originally built with, but the wheel bearings and seals are the same.  One Ton 4x4 1300D (1969-1970), 1310 (1971-1973), and 200 (1974-1975) Dana 70 closed knuckle front axles all have 8 bolt front wheels with a 6-1/2" bolt circle. The smaller wheel bolt circle required a change to smaller outside diameter front wheel bearings compared to those used on 1961-1968 axles. Although smaller, the 1 ton 1969-1975 bearings/seals are more than adequately sized for the rated axle capacity. The few Loadstar 1600 2 ton Dana 70 4x4 6,000 pound rated front axles we have seen use the same wheel bearings and seals as the 1961-1968 1 tons, however, if you have one of the 2 ton front axles, we suggest you call us before ordering parts.
