Rear suspension identification?

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the quick reply. Is it possible it was original equipment on the truck?  Is it something fairly easy to get parts for or has it been obsolete for some time?

The frame is in really rough shape actually. Someone has run flat iron trying  to stiffen it up, it is a single frame. I thought all the 61 were at least double but not sure. Maybe someone else knows.

Thanks for the replies gents!  Not a very usable ratio (about 7.1) and the bushings are all shot. Probably cheaper to upgrade than to try to repair this setup.

I think its either 5.85 or 5.65 is lowest ratio for these

Rockwell took over Timkens qxle division and continued to make these but as a 6 rod

I have been told that the centers are interchangeable, I  have two center's to replace the 10.22s in my Federal 

I'll find out when I try to change them if they are

Definitely Timken bogie and judging by the color of the diffs it could have military origin.
