compare your lockouts to a known halfton lockout, if yours dwarfs them that will get you closer, then compare the front cover it should be alot bigger.

If it is a 60 then it should have 9/16 bolt heads. A 44 should have 1/2 bolt heads.

The 10-bolt GM front and the D44 front are similar in strength. But the diff. cover looks completely different between the two. The D60 has the same shape of diff cover as the D44 but is larger.

Scroll down about 1/2 way to see a D60 diff cover for comparison.

I'm guessing the front is a Corp 10. The number 14030376 looks to be an AAM (American Axle & Manufacturing) carrier casting number. It's possible the rear is a 14-bolt (Corp 14) also built by AAM.
