Dually truck

I recently came across a steal on an early 80's 1 ton chevy dually.

I was wondering if the truck was worth picking up??

What axles will this weapon have (I think is a 14 bolt / 60) and can they be converted to single wheel easily.

What kind of axle width would I be looking at in the rear.

Reason I ask, I'm considering swapping these axles into my S-10

Dually pickup:
rear: D70HD, ~72" wide. (can be made ~3" wider with SRW hubs)

Dually cab & chassis
rear: 14bFF, ~63" wide. (can be made ~3" wider with SRW hubs)

front: D60, ~75" since it has the dually hubs
(can be made ~6" narrower with SRW hubs)

just remember that the 14b/d70 backing plate perchs will be much farther away from the hub assemebly and will need to moded to disc and custom welded to reach correctly.

the front is a nobrainer swap.

D60 front for sure

rear is either a 14 or a 70

50/50 chance of either

70 rear were the big dooley and had a rear sway bar

14 bolt didnt

have to just look under it to see what is has


awesome find if its for the right price then i am jealous i wish could ever find a k30 around here of any kind

rare as heck

good luck

Thanks for the info, I've never played much with these bigger axles so any info would be great.
