If there was a D44 kingpin, I'd happily run it.
Ummmm....kingpin D44's are rare as hen's teeth. Maybe rare-er.

Post the damn pic already!!!

Kingpin D60's > balljoint D60's
Fictional Kingpin D44's > balljoint D44's!!!

Can it be easily converted to disk? Probably not worth it, since it is such a rare and unsupported axle, you'd have to have any repair parts made for it.

That's what I was thinking.

Will it even fit the modern size shafts & u-joints?

Rumor has it that they will fit. but as other said, they are so rare, and by the time your done you could have built a 60 kingpin for all the hassle


The tubes are also less than 3"....2 3/4 i think.

There's a number of options that are stronger than a regular D44 and not quite a D60:

the tubes are the same OD as an eb 44...more than 2 3/4. they are also a lot thicker than the eb ones
::edit:: i'll try to find some peices to get a picture
::edit again:: i just went out and measured the tubes at 2 3/4. sorry for the misinfo, i was relying on my not so good memory. but i do know that the tubes on the kingpin 44 were significantly thicker than the eb ones

The drum-brake EB44 I had was 2-3/4" tube. I have 2-3/4" tube on a '75 F250 D44 also.

The switch to 3" tube must have been in the 76-77 vintage?

That's just booty-fabbed TTB. Dunno if there's any hard and fast rules. Besides using the stock jointed shaft on the longside, you may be able to use the 70's F250 highboy shaft - they feature the same u-joint size AFAIK.

There's a few guys that have done them over at the diesel stop....

EDIT: I'm collecting D50TTB parts for this kind of project too.

I meantion the three types of kingpin knuckles. Smalled closed knuckle (baseball sized), Large closed knuckle (softball sized) and the Open Kinpin of the high pinion axle.

None are that strong, except the large close knuckle one.

I have the 'other' rare breed rs44. Mark and I found both at the same time in the same place. Mine is from a 71' F-100 with 2 3/4" .500 wall tubes. It has 260 spicer joints. Anyone know if I can put 297/760 axles and joints in there?
