Here's a pic of the front axle. What is it?

Truck is running great, and the mileage is significantly better. Rear driveshaft will need to be balanced, otherwise all is Honky-Doory!
  dana 50 ifs. usually they break between the u bolts drivers side. your truck looks pretty good. up here with the salt it wouldnt

Sorry to highjack Delaware Jack's thread. But Snowstorm you do know the axle shafts do slide out of the housing after the hub is removed, no need for the torch and a lot less clean up. ???
and you have done this?? i am referring to the center u joint not the axle joints. i have done the same thing on axle joints. cut it apart put the new one in. that way you dont have to pull the wheel bearings. on the newer trucks with the sealed wheel bearing it saves a lot of time

Thanks Snowstorm, now I know what to search for if it breaks. ::) But it might just end up in a field with a bag of oats to distract it........

JB, no problem, any info I can find on Hee Haul is welcome. There are some forums on old trucks, but they often aren't much help.

Snowstorm, I had to go look to see if I was thinkin about the right joint and I was and mine is out as I type and has been since I bought the truck. You might be right on cuttin it out as it is the long axle, but mine might be split right next to the u-joint as it has a boot right there but might be just a bumper to keep the axle from beating all over the place when the joint fails. No I have never changed one but will have to shortly, and I have never seen a Dana 50 IFS crack, maybe a northern thing with all the salt they use on the roads.

Delaware your right "those" forums turn into a match in a heartbeat at times.

Road salt is murder on vehicles....... You're not insulting anyone mentioning that, it's just a fact of life.

Its either a dana44hd or dana 50 TTB, most 250's had the 44hd. Measure the diameter of the locking hub if its ~3" its a 44hd if its 4" its a 50.

As for the u-joints all of them are serviceable without cutting anything. On the passenger side the short shaft that goes into the differential is held in with a C-clip inside the carrier, therefor to replace that joint you have to pull the 3rd member out the back of the axle housing. Many guys will then eliminate the C-clip and place a cut down valve spring inside the slip joint, the tension from that will hold the axle inside the differential.

I have a 96 f250 7.3 plow and over 400k and mine is not cracked  (yet)   :D or did they fix them by this time
my 97 did it when it was 2 yrs old. at the time i asked the ford dealer about it. he had 9 trucks waiting to be fixed. the fix was replace the housing. the parts are no longer available. if you find one buy it. if you have to replace the center u joint cut it out with a torch then install the new one
that's what I did then ground the caps a little so they slid in nice   :) if you don't cut that u joint you have to pull the front end out and get the keeper of the end of the axel  hot wrenches are the best  :D
