I have Scout 44s with 2 different splines on the stubs (27, very common, and an odd ball 19 (I think) spline). I do know that the 27 spline stub will spin inside the lockout from the oddball. I also believe that other IH D44s came with a 19 spline stub (Travelalls for example).
Who knows what mix and match previous owners of these axles have pulled? ... its antibody's guess.
If its important, look it up in the Dana/Spicer catalog.
(Edit) You all got me curious so I looked it up in the dana/spicer X510-8 document.
IH apparently used 2 Dana 44 stub axle splines in the 67-78 time frame; several lengths of 1 5/32" 27 spline stubs and several lengths of 1 1/4" 19 spline stubs.
I could probably dig out exactly which was used on OEM Scouts and Scout 2s but it would take time (Its generally accepted that the 27 spline version is the scout spline).
...a well prepped, well driven, vehicle should do well in any terrain, including the highway.
Carburetors became obsolete during the last century... do what ever it takes to get fuel injection...It makes bigger grins off road.
