|BarrelRoll||Easiest option would be double spline shafts and drive flanges. Branik Drive flanges aren't drilled till you order them and can be drilled for any bolt pattern. Double spline shafts are made to order and can be made to any spline.|

|sbcrichie||well im sure its a little late but I finally got around to checking this today. yes they are the same bolt pattern as a 60/70.|

|dan58||RCV makes their rear drive slug/caps in house. I bet they could make it to the bolt pattern, and you'd have the ability to run their dual-splined shafts.|

|sbcrichie||im pretty sure branik just used a normal 60 blank, ill look and see if I have a sterling shaft laying around and compare it to a 60 shaft.|

I may have to order a blank from Dutchman to find out. Would be nice to order D60 blanks and have those cut to the deeper pressure angle of the Ford splines. Inexpensive, too.

I saw that. In my lazy searching. Does it answer whether I can use D60 flanges?
Now that you're done fucking around and still haven't answered, too busy getting your panties in a twist over my replies, I'll thank you for your time.

I could, if I can verify if the bolt pattern in the same, and I don't need the o-ring to seal. Which is my original question. The couple places I've called aren't sure. Dutchman thinks it'll work. Haven't called Branick yet this morning though.
I may just have to order a D60 blank and try it, not many people are using the Sterling outers, or at least making posts about it that come up in The Google.

|pcoplin||You don't think I have? You're really fucking helpful. What are you still doing in here?|
|04-03-2014 09:20 AM|
|CowboyKyle||Call Branik, CTM, RCV, Moser or Dutchman. They will all be very willing to help you piss away your money and time.|

I just want to know about Sterling shaft availability. IF you don't know anything about it, get the fuck out of here.

To the original poster:
Why on earth swap out the Sterling center for the 14.5 center?
If you're not utilizing a drop out 3rd, or a 13 bolt kit, you're gaining NOTHING.
The Sterling has more ratios available, better stock ground clearance and all the same locker options. Please explain your logic.

|pcoplin||Keeping the SD brakes to match the front.|
|04-02-2014 07:11 PM|
|RANGERROD||If your already thinking about using a 14 bolt center why no just go C&c 14 bolt 63.5" stock. Then I assume your running a superduty 60 front from your post. Just have the front redrilled to match the 14 bolt. Seems easier than narrowing an axle. Just a thought.|

|pcoplin||Good deal. So same 8x4 flange pattern?|
|04-02-2014 05:35 PM|
|sbcrichie||branik did a set for me. I believe they used a normal dana blank, I just silicone the bolt flange sealed up fine.|
|04-02-2014 05:08 PM|
|pcoplin||ALso, is the axle bolt pattern the same as a Dana? I'm wondering if I can just use a standard D60 blank and use the gasket, and ditch the o-ring?|

Ford/Sterling 10.50 aftermarket shafts/blanks?
I have a 2000 Ford 10.50 I bought for the outers and brakes. I was either going to shorten to 65 inch and use the axle in the rear, or cut the ends off and weld to a 14B center. I can't shorten the stock shafts because they neck down after the inner splines.
I understand the 35 splines are 45 degree instead of the normal D60 30 degree cut. However, I called the local drivetrain guy, and he says he doesn't have a listing for blanks because of the differing sealing surface at the hub.
Does anyone have a supplier for axle shafts, or even 1.5 inch blanks? Thanks!
