If you want I can walk you through getting into the bearings. not sure if you plan on checking them out and repacking them. I only offer because it is very fresh on my mind, last night I finished one side of mine.. new races, wheel bearings, spindle bearings, seals. in a few hours will be home to pack the bearings and finish the other side of the axle. let me know and I will take lots of pics for you.

Same offer is available on the king pins. I followed a detailed write up and it was simple.

Update:

I've gotten sidetracked lately working on other folks' Jeeps and taking care of some urgent family matters. Here's what I did today to move things along a little bit. I started by disassembling the hubs.

The phillips head screw retains the hub lock switch, so I simply removed the screw & removed the red switch.



Next was to remove the six, 9/64" allen head screws that hold the "hub cap" on.



Here's what it looks like removed:




Next was to remove that phillips head screw at ~ the 9 o'clock position:




Then out comes this ring and spring behind it:





Now its time to remove two snap rings. One inner & one outer.



I like to screw two of the allen head screws back into it and gently pull the inner parts out:





Looking back inside - you can see the hub nuts and a washer between them that I need to remove.



Using my newly aquired trusty D60 hub nut socket I removed things.



Keyed washer:




Second nut:




More to follow.....

A birds nest and a couple loose lugs fell out as I was disassembling things.



Here's another loose lug that was somehow trapped behind the rotor (5 total).



A couple taps with a dead blow hammer & the caliper & hub came right off....along with the hub bearing of course.




Spindle exposed:



A couple more taps and the lugs came loose from the rotor & hub so I could seperate them.



Upon initial inspection, the hub internals look good.



I then wrapped the spindle & removed it from the kingpin.



Once the five 11/16" spindle nuts were removed, all it took was a couple taps of the dead blow & things came right off:



Spindle bearing:



Trashed rotor/dust shield.



Caliper bracket ready to come off:

Caliper bracket coming off then cleaned-up:





Caliper slider area looks pretty good to me.




I protected the spindle bearing then started cleaning it up some.

Have fun with the Dana 60 project, aren't the inner shafts on the front 35 spline to begin with? Definitely run 35 spline outers them things are beefy.
Friend of mine actually made his HP Dana 60's wider, he got them from under a CJ5 and widen'd them to fit his TJ he used part of the front tune to widen the rear then bought some tube machined it to fit the housing and the one inner C and changed it from passenger to driver drop that way.
Even though those axles are big and heavy the pumkin only hangs 1" lower than a Dana 44 housing. Before you decide to narrow it stuff it under the Jeep and kind of do the flex thing with it to see if the driveshaft will hit either the frame or the engine skid. Another friend of mine stuck the same axle under his CJ 7 and had to narrow it and still had to clearance the frame quite a bit to get it to clear the driveshaft, had to run a skinnier driveshaft than he liked to make it all work.

Yep, from what I've read, the Ford HPD60's (like the one I'm getting ready to use), have 35 spline inners.

I have other plans at this point & doubt I'll narrow it by way of cutting anything.

yes but...

there are two types of stock inner shafts. thick ones and thin ones. my '79 front 60 shafts taper down and are smaller. The thicker inner shafts are preferred of course.

From '80 on all front dana 60's went to the larger shafts but it was phased in so there is always a chance of getting the little ones in the early 80's.

If you want a narrow track, you could stay 8 lug and run H1 wheels and tires. IIRC H1 wheels have 7" of backspacing. This would also get you beadlocks (and even runflats if you want them) relatively cheap. However, this will still leave your hubs way out there.

37" humvee tires are like $90 each, also.

Thanks for the heads-up on that. Yep, that's an option I have been thinking about. I've been tossing around the idea of running 35 spline drive flanges as well to help keep things a little narrower.

BTW: Since you're a Grand Junction guy, if you run into Wally or Carrie tell 'em I said hi. They are long time friends of mine.

Yep, I just had to go out to check. It somehow was stuck on the axle shaft & didn't come out when I pulled the spindle.

You can see it here:
