Default Please Help ID This Dana Axle with its IH LST code

Hi,
I recently acquired this Dana axle built for IH. I intend to install it in my '69 Loadstar 1700 after I go through it. But could someone please ID the axle assembly's code so I know what I have? I have no idea what Line set ticket code this axle is. And once that's established could someone please tell me what parts manual and service manual its in? I have not found it in the Loadstar / CargoStar's CTS-2300 or CTS-2307 ... unless I just don't know what I'm looking for - which is a possibility.

I'll provide more info this weekend if I can.
What I've been told so far, which I don't know if its true or not, is that the pumpkin assembly is a RA-30 and the axle assembly is a S-9000 probably made for a PayStar. But, if true, I still don't know how to convert any of this info into a IH code number so I can look up parts and/or find it in a service manual. Any help would be appreciated.

Every comment helps, so thank you all for your help.

this is a guess so dont put to much weight in it, but i think its a DANA S 110 maybe iv seen these types of axels as a kid on the farm, grandfather called them DANA model S it seems like 110 was the number..... again just a guess, remembering back 40 years....

Well, FWIW if anyone is interested, the answer to my question is the following:

This is a NAPCO axle manufactured by Dana for IH. It's rated at 9000 lbs and tips the scales, with hubs and brakes attached but no wheels, at 1260 lbs.

It's referred to as a S-9000 presumably because it was made for the S series of medium duty IH trucks of the early 80's and is rated at 9000 lbs. (In contrast a heavy duty Dana 70 as used in the IH Loadstars is rated at 6000 lbs.)

Although the pumpkin assembly seems to be interchangeable with a RA-30, the axle assembly is actually a FA-64 or FA-78 with a corresponding IH code of either 02064 or 02078. I have not been able to find any difference between the two in the IH parts books, other than possibly the brakes.
Most parts are still available either directly from Dana or IH/Navistar at three times the price of the Dana equivalent parts.

I've found the parts breakdown in 3 different IH parts manuals, and the servicing of the axle assembly is in two different IH shop manuals and at least 4 different DOD military service manuals.

BTW I have the military service manuals for this axle assembly and for my Rockwell transfer case and I've found the military service manuals to be far, far superior to the IH shop service manuals. If something is not clear in your IH shop repair manual you may want to try and find a military service manual that covers the same topic. They may cover the same things but are much more detailed in their procedures, pictures, torque specs, etc. and seem to be geared toward the person with little experience.

What I find interesting is that both the IH parts books and Dana tech support refer to this as a NAPCO axle. NAPCO was one of the original leaders in converting trucks to 4wd until the mid 50's when the big three manufacturers began offering their own factory 4wd systems. According to NAPCO's web site, they still offer parts support for military trucks and tanks, including the less common vehicles of WWII such as the M2/M3 Half-Tracks etc. http://www.napcointl.com/about.php
I have yet to contact them to find out if they offer parts support for this axle too.

I could go into a lot more details on this axle assembly, but unless you're rebuilding one, what's the point.

Thank you int77345 for your reply. Your comments and attempt to help is appreciated. Thank you, Sir.
