I forget the name of the stuff, but there is at least one company that makes tire balancing powder compound. It is supposed to work pretty good.

The guy selling the B&M dana 60 hubs is Trkkllr77

Damn, thanks! I need to write that down as it's at least the second time I've forgotten it, lol.

Oh and the powder balancing stuff is Equal, I think. Seems to have mixed reviews with some reports of it clumping if it gets moisture in the tire. Using gas in the tires instead of shop air seems to solve that issue I think.

i think they should interchange. the quick google search sorta confirms this. same spline count and diameter. i dunno check, i mean you already have to change one might as well check with the other as well.

They interchange. i've tried it by putting the yoke off the front D60 onto the rear D70. perfect match.

Might want to post over at RamchargerCentral.com and see if maybe someone has a set of used Selectros they would sell. Other than that the only thing I can think of is to buy them new but they are not cheap.

Finally got my axle's build up, got a little sidetracked by a small project at work, an 1979 Fiat 124 build with a 2L 160hp engine. thats a whole lot of fun!

For the difference in width between the front and rear axle im gonna widen the front rims to the inside by 2", en the rear to the outside bij 3". combined with 38mm spacers in the back this will make the front and rear equal in width. with a width of 187 cm at the middle of the wheels. this should make the truck about 12 to 15 cm wider than original. im gonna need some wider fenders to get past the yearly checkup!

Axle's






Fiat 124 special, 160 pk - YouTube
absolutly undrivable at a wet road. but very entertaining

Short question, Im about ready to mount the axle's and i have a leaf spring question. the fronts are a bit saggy, and i have an extra rear leaf set. what leafs should i put on the front to get the most lift and flex?

Did you ever find new hubs? Were they 30 or 35 spline?

Got the axle's under today.





I was hoping to get my front rims extended 2.5" to the inside, but the guy who does that said it was not possible. so i need to find someone who can recenter them for me. until then stock rims, and skinny looking tire's up front


Also got an extra oil cooler from a volvo 940. fit's like is was made for a w200!


it got pretty messy during the day


placed a rear tire for mockup, still waiting on the rims getting finished


All in all a lot of work, and alot of fabbing due to parts nog being available here. I do like the new stance! cant wait to take her out in the mud again!

You could always convert the front hubs and spindles over to SRW (Single Rear Wheel) hubs. Dodge parts may not be available but you can use GM D60 parts which may be a lot easier to find.

Some people don't know, but the NP203 relies on splash oiling from the chain, so pop it in 4locked every once in a while to get the oil moving.

I'm assuming the conversion is one of the ones that makes 4wd into 2wd and 4lock into 4wd.

I know. im gonna overfill the case to have just enough oil to keep it all oiled up.

if some bearing does go bad, well i got enough spare cases with broken or busted chains..

i really wished better TC's were not so rare and expensive over here

oh yeah! she's up and running again!

had some mis fortune with the extended rims, the welds were not airtight. but i really needed the dodge, so i had some tube's placed instead.

only forgot to lower the hitch, promised i'd take a small trailer with me to camp.





but she drives great! much easier with the lower gearing. only need to trim the wheel well's a bit more. they touch at hard steering and road bumps.

after a while it gets pretty annoying to hit 4000 rpm trying to keep up with traffic, so i'd like a 4th gear. what would be the best tranny? i cant really find anything on dodge transmissions. i'd like it to be bolt on. prefferably stand alone, no computer, is that possible? i might be doing a magnum swap. but that will be propane fueled, so no computers there.

i guess a also need a new transfer case then, guess a good time to swap the 203 for a 205. but, do i need new driveshafts then? or are they the same.

I take it you mean an overdrive transmission? About the only easy choice would be a A518 aka 46RH which is basically an overdrive version of the 727. It can take either the NP241 or the NP205 transfer cases. The 518/46RH can be found in many '90-'96 Dodge trucks. It will take a little electrical trickery to get the overdrive functioning but no computer is required.

And no, the driveshafts will not swap as the length of both the transmission and transfer case will change when they are swapped.

Well not an overdrive per se, but i guess thats the only option then. Will the total combo be longer or shorter? Since im kinda pushing it already on my front driveshaft.

Time to find a wrecked truck i guess. What would be a reasonable price if i would buy it in the US? Total combo that is, tranny/tc and driveshafts.

Overdrive is about your only option as far as automatic transmissions go if high RPMs are your issue. 3rd gear is 1:1 just as a 4th gear in a manual 4 speed is 1:1. If you need to lower the RPMS at speed, your only option is some sort of overdrive transmission, taller tires or re-gear your axles.

As far as prices, it would vary horribly due to the many different sources, conditions, local market and the hassle of shipping overseas.

time to kick this back up...

I went offroading today. and all went well, but suddenly after i tried to turn, the engine stalled. and lost all compression on all 8 cil at the same time. checked the usual stuff what i could in the dirt, and all seems good. got oil pressure, valves move from what i can see through the filler cap.

im gonna pull the engine tomorrow. anyone got an idea of what could be wrong?

Are you certain you lost compression? Sounds like something much simpler. Have you done a compression test?

starter turns the engine way to fast and you can clearly hear that there is no compression on any cilinder.

it turns like there are no spark plugs in it, so yeah.

That sounds really odd. I'd pull the valve covers and make sure the valves are still in time and are not bent or that your valve springs are not broken.
