PML Part Number 6063
PML makes two covers for this differential. Read About PML Dana 50/60 Front Covers.
|Black powder coating
Volume: 0.5 quarts over stock, approximately. On Ford F–350 trucks, this front end differential cover is slightly deeper than the stock covers for added fluid capacity.
Dimensions:Click here for dimensions. the A separate window will open and load an image. The stock cover we have is about 2.63 inches deep. This cover is about 1 inch deeper than that. On the inside, the distance from the gasket flange to the inside is approximately 3.1 inches at the tallest point. Check for clearance with wheels straight, left and right. Check that the fill/level check is in the same location as on your stock cover.
Applications: This PML Dana 50/60 front end cover is designed for older Ford Super Duty trucks. This cover clears the ring gear and the steering linkage on most older Ford truck applications. Possible applications for this cover include:
Steering Linkage Clearance Concerns: For trucks about 1999 and newer, the steering linkage can cause a clearance issue with this cover. Trucks that are lifted or modified may not have any clearance issues. PML designed a cover to clear the linkage. See Part Number 11169. Older model trucks (1966 to about 1999), cannot use Part Number 11169 because it is too shallow to clear the gears on older trucks.
Vent: If your stock cover has a vent fitting (instead of having a vent on the differential housing), this differential cover cannot be used. The vent is common on Dodge trucks.
Variations: Configurations vary so please check carefully. Some F–250 trucks have independent front suspension and cannot use this cover. Some Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks can have a track bar and do not have clearance for a larger cover. Be sure to check for clearance with the steering all the way at stops.
Drain and Fill/Level Check: This differential cover has drain and fill/level check holes.
