probably a 10.25 Sterling...might be a D70 though, but my bet would be on a sterling.

oddly enough an E-350 will have a D-70 in all likelyhood. The sterling seemed to be only in use in the F-series. I've yet to see anything other than a Dana/spicer under a 3/4 or higher Van.

yeah, i'm pretty sure the 94 E-250 i was driving at work had a D-60.

I have never seen a van have sterling. It could be a D 61:( watch out for those. If its a 350 it prolly has the 70!

3.5" tubes = Dana 61 or 70

35 spline shafts = Dana 70

Mine says '70' in the webbing.. no chance it's a 61 is there? I'm going to fix it up but I'll stop now if it's a 61 :)

Thanks
Don't think so. pretty sure mine said 61 in small letters (1/2" tall?).

pull a shaft to make sure.

Sadly I had it pulled the other day and didn't count the splines. It did look roughly like a 35 would look though. I think I'm safe.

I think I'm gonna do a disc brake conversion on it.. it'll cost less than fixing hte stock brakes.
