i know that a 14 bolt detroit will work in an eaton if you use the 14 bolt's shafts. my question is will the opposite work. will my detroit for an eaton fit the 14 bolt's ring gear if i use the eatons shafts?
It has nothing to do with the ring gear. When installing the DL in either axle, you use the carrier case that came with the axle. The locker only replaces the spider gears and pins and the side gears. If it works one way it will work the other way. It would be much easier to sell the Eaton DL to someone who needs it and just buy a DL for the 14 bolt though.
