Parts for Dana-Spicer Model 44 Rear Axles in 1972-1979 AMC Jeep® Vehicles

Axle Identification

top_page
photo
A Bill of Material Number (BOM) is stamped on the right axle tube or on a Build Tag (red arrow) attached to the differential by two of the differential cover bolts (yellow arrows) when the vehicle was shipped from the factory. The BOM number is a 6 digit number beginning with a 6 plus a dash number (ex: 610604-2). They can be used to determine not only the axle model, but also what components the axle was originally built with. We often ask for this number to insure we provide you with the exact parts you need for your truck.

Each different BOM number signifies an engineering part change which may be minor or major and may involve one or more parts. Unfortunately, these tags are often missing on trucks that had prior differential service dash number indicates the axle ratio

Differential and Pinion Bearings (Individual)

top_page
product note

All 1972 to 1979 Jeeps with Dana 44 Rear Axles with flanged axle shafts use the same differential and pinion bearings.
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!

Gaskets and Gasket Maker

top_page
product note

Depending upon the year, a cut gasket or RTV sealant was used by Dana-Spicer to seal the differential cover. Early, thin gauge covers with embossed flanges are made for use with a cut gasket. Later thick gauge covers with flat flanges are designed for sealing with RTV or if you desire, you can use a combination of a cut gasket with thin films of RTV. We stock both genuine Dana Gaskets and Ultra Gray RTV Sealant which has high adhesion and excellent resistance to synthetic lubricants.
