From what I recall, the pumpkin had some extra casting and a fitting or two added to it as I recall. If you look at the pumpkin, it is different than other 44's.

Hope this helps some.

What year was it out of? Only the early 80's had them, and even then, not all of them.

The vac disconnect D44 has a big 'ol vaccum canister mounted on the center section near the diff cover. It's painfully obvious that it's different.

I think the diff cover has some junk on it too, or is at least different.
