[E-Type] rear end gears & Dana 44


(Ron Rader) #1

I am looking for a “NEW” 3.07 rear end gear. Is the Dana 44 the same as the one used in the E?

Hi Ron,
I have a Dana 44 setup in my 64. The Jaguar input flange will not fit
the Dana 44 input splines so an yoke type is used. The offset on the yoke
will make up for the removal of both the Jaguar flanges. Several cars in our
club use this setup, one for at least 15 years, works great .

would it be better to do it with NOS parts if available?

These are standard Camero or Corvette gears and I think the entire job was ,
I can’t find the bill, was $560, gears, bearings seals, u-joint yoke and 1
new joint. The limited slip was alright.

In reply to a message from Bob and Darl sent Fri 30 Aug 2002:

In regards to Dana 44’s…

Current available sets NEW are used in 1984 to 1994 Corvettes.
The pinion spline and front bearing are different but can be
used in the Jag case as mentioned with a new flange.Also bearing
preload is obtained with shims and not crush sleeves. You can get
a flange with the Jag flange pattern but with the new spline. It
is a stock Spicer Item.

New Dana 44 gear sets use smaller ring gear bolts which means
that you will have to machine spacers for the bolts. Sort of like
slipping sections of steel tubing over the bolts.

Drivetrain Speciaties advertises in most mags and stocks these
items except for the spacers. Any well stocked Dana Spicer dealer
should have these parts but they may not know the work around.
Tom’s differentials in Paramont California is the only one I know
stocking the spacers.

The new setups are just as strong and the elimination of the
crush sleeve is a bonus.
