FARGO or Fabco axle ?

buddy picked up a set of fairly tough lookin 8 lug axles at a swap meet. Guy who sold them said they came off an International. He asked me to post and ask about them. Rear is full float, not a 14 bolt or dana 60-70, front does not have selective hubs but as caps which are labeled either Fargo, or fabco. Cursory google searches are not helping. From his description i'm thinking they are 1 ton or greater (based on weight took 4 men to load each one) as always any help is appreciated. Marko

Don't know what kind of international, older truck, unk num of bolts front or back i will look this weekend when i go up the hill if yall would like more info or if you would like me to look for somthing specific
ty again

They're probably a closed knuckle Dana 44 and Dana 60. The drums on the front make it much heavier than a normal front axle, and the rear... well who cares, thats probably what they are, but if you want a better idea post a pic.

The rear kinda sounds like an old eaton...Some of those sound very much like what your speaking of....

The front axle sounded kinda like an old napco until you said it was a open knuckle.


As far as fabco goes, they work mostly with heavier driveline stuff, but it is entirely possible they made smaller stuff. Anything iv ever seen from them was rivaling the eaton heavy axles.
sorry, gotta get the pics dude.
