Is the spindle pattern on the D50 TTB the same as the large spindle diameter on the HP D44? I want to convert my HP D44 to 8 lug and this seems like an option.

I've never messed with the dana 50 ttb, but with the d44 ttb, the spindles use 5 bolts, where on the solid HP 44 they use 6, I believe. The easiest way to convert to 8 lugs is to find some 8 lug hubs and knuckles and just swap everything from the knuckles out over to the HP44.

And that's not all TTB 44 spindles either. 93-up are 5 bolt...

As for D50 stuff, it won't work, it's basicly a D60 spindle with a shorter index(might be the same as a balljoint 60)

and the opening thru the straight axle knuckle is huge compared to the ttb's.

When I converted my EB's D44 to discs, I used Chevy spindles with Ford hubs and rotors so, maybe Chevy 8 lug D44 (not the HD version) hubs and rotors might fit on the Ford spindles :confused: Something to look into.......Hans
