Can you clean it off a bit and snap another picture? I've never taken a dana 27 apart but I'm sure someone has.. they probably just need to see what you're working with there.

Yeah that's kinda what I was thinking where he was at. My dana 30 has the same washer you are talking about.. but I don't remember which order it was in. It's a washer that's bent out in a couple places. If it's what we're thinking.. you just need little hooks to get behind it and pull it out.

I used little dentist hooks like they clean your teeth with.

Some scout dana 44 fronts have a round looking spindle nut that looks like that. On the scouts there is a set screw holding the nut in place. I can't remember if it is on the face of the nut or up on an edge. So look for a set screw.
