Big Axle ID

I need some help here…
I found these axles in a junkyard, owner says he believes they came out of an old IH or Dodge 3TON? Truck, both have limited slip, gear ratio is about 6.17.
Front one is a Dana 70, closed ball yoke design.
Bolt pattern is 6 in 8˝”



Problem is the rear one, I don’t know what is it…



It looks like an old Eaton, but bigger.



Here lying in fornt a D60



Any help would get you at least a case of beer when you come over here...

I am not too familiar with the bigger Dodge stuff, but those axles look suspiciously like the axles under an old International S-Series 4x4 that our local township used to plow snow and spread salt. When I say S-Series, I mean their line of medium duty trucks made in the 80's, like school buses.

I never looked inside of those axles, but you should pop them open. Limited slips in old-style axles like that rear (and probably that front, too) says to me "No-Spin."

International did put an axle like that under some of their pickups, but I have never looked at one up close. They had an 11" ring gear and 1.5" coarse spline axleshafts, and a No-Spin was a factory option.

Thanks Dave, I checked the IH data from Dana/Spicer and the 1 1/4 ton 1600 truck from 1967 to 1973 had the Dana 70 with 6.17 and the Powr-Lok.

I hadn´t been able to find tech specs for that truck
Anyone?

The rear looks like an F106 to me.

The rear is an IH RA-15. no L/S were available it's either open or has a NO-SPIN *aka* detroit locker. I'm building a front axle out of one.

Somebody mentioned the RA-20,
Do you have a place for technical info about this?
Where do you get parts?

the RA-15 and 20 are very similar... the only diffrence I can find is that the 20 have larger hubs with a big 5 lug budd pattern. some say the RA-15 was only open and that the 20 had the NOSPIN. Brake drums are impossable to find. bearings and seals should be available at most local parts stores but since you are in Honduras... I'd have no idea. I could get you the phone number for a couple of vendors that deal in IH parts/manuals if you would like.

Yes, I already changed bearings and seals without problems.
Been more into ID it because of things more like shafts and big things, I know that is hard to break them but you never know.

Have you used yours yet?

The phone numbers for the vendors will be fine, thank you in advance.

They were just International's medium duty line, you could get their gas motors and probably some diesels. Called Loadstars. They had all kinds of available engines, transmissions, auxiliary transmissions, and axles- so no two you see will probably be alike.

Looked like this:

those axles did not come from a loadstar because they are too narrow. They were found mostly in 1300 or 200 (1 tons) and 1500(1.5 ton) series pickups. because it is the big 6 lug I'd say it came from a 1960's 1300 pickup. heres a lead on a place with used parts... coonrods 303-838-8505 let me know if that number works its been awhile
