Well, during that year, both the Dana 44 and 60 used 5 on 5.5" bolt pattern. Have you pulled the axle shafts? The Dana 60 should have 35 spline axles and a 9.75" ring gear. The 44 should have 30 spline axles and a 8.75" ring gear.

Sorry, I don't have anything to sell, but here's the info I found (from the link I posted):
Quote:
One of the reasons you see so much information for Scouts and Bronco's is because they have the same problem you and I do. Drum brakes and a 5 x 5.5 wheel bolt pattern. This same bolt pattern was used on 2 and 4 wheel drive Ford 1/2 ton/Bronco from about '73 to '95. Those are the years you need parts from.
Ford spindles from those years used the same wheel bearings as Chevy until about mid-year '74 and Jeep until about '76. After that Chevy and Jeep went to a larger bearing and spindle. If you can get an axle from an early Chevy/Jeep with the smaller bearing/spindle then you can just slide the Ford hub/rotor over the spindle and you're there. Or you can find an early spindle to put on a later Chevy/Jeep axle. You can't easily swap on a Ford spindle cause it uses 5 bolts rather than 6. Once you get that done you pull the check valve out of the front side of the master cylinder and you should be home free.


If you're not set on using that axle, it'd probably be easier to get a new/different axle that doesn't have the closed knuckles.
