What 3rd member casting are you using? Do you plan on running the ARP stud kit in it?


i think the casting is...DOOB or DOOW i will have to look when i get home. as far as studs go, the cap came with allen head bolts so i may go to a local fastener supply store and get the equilivent for the other side. although, ARP studs might be a better idea Idea

ARP stud kit is about 21.00 and its the 4 studs, nuts and washers.


Your 3rd is a DOOW-B N-case. When I was researching for my 9", I read some places that the N-case was better by far. Other sites said the C7AW-E single rib case was just as good as the earlier N-case. Everything was so conflicting and I wanted to save alittle weight, thats why I went with the Moser unit.

If I read all this right, your only replacing one bearing cap. Is that right? What happened to the cap?

youre right, its a DOOW-B. as far as the cap goes, its the only weak link left. there was nothing wrong with the other one i just wanted to be sure i didnt break it. i only used one because thats all that you really need. the left cap takes significantly more force than the right.

that Moser unit is pretty solid. i dont think you can break it. i wanted one but for a little over $200 for the nodular case, i couldnt pass it up.

I replaced the cap on my Dana 60 also! With the tubes gone it was easy. Also it was line bored!

well, its done. i finally made it over to the machine shop to get the cap milled. we did it on a Bridgeport using some shim stock under the flat surfaces around the bolt holes and put it in the mill vise. we assumed we would have to hone the case after milling but when we cut it to the exact size and measured, it was better than the factory cap so we left well-enough alone.

Haha....I'm gonna make you put a big gaudy Littlecrest sticker on your car. My wife still has those horrible hubcaps on her Vic by the way! She won't let me take 'em off.

Nice looking work!!!

Last week I purchased a Strange S-case off Ebay. The auction said it was new and stated that it had steel main caps. Being the retard that I am. It didn't dawn on me until it arrived, that the S-case comes with nodular caps and its the Pro case that's got the steel caps(actually Chrome-moly). Being the nice guy I am , I emailed the company I bought it from. I was just pointing out that this commonly used auction format had misinformation. I wasn't after anything. I just wanted to point out that a correction was needed.

This company was so cool about everything. He offered me a Pro case to honor the auction!! Its nice to find someone on Ebay that honors their mistakes.

Since this case is going into that garage sale housing w/ 31 spline 1541 alloy axle's. I don't think a Pro case is necessary.
