• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

WTB IH FA-25(dana 44 large open knuckle) circa 72/73

Need a good FA-25 front end, doesnt need to be complete, in fact I only need the housing, since mine has good guts. This is the Dana 44 large open knuckle IH axle, to my knowledge only available early 70s for a few years. Would only be interested in a complete axle if it has good 8 lug drums attached. Power lock would be a bonus as well as 4:10 gears. Looking in/around the Placer county California area, not a fan of having to ship it, would much rather pick it up and pay cash after seeing it in person.

Thanks, let me know the details when you can, this thing wont be on the move for a while, anyways. T-case is in a million pieces.
I may have an axle sourced already, but throw up a pic of the pile if you can, may be interested in the t-case and rear end as well depending on price.
