    I have a 1987 F350 with a Sterling Dually in back, it is a narrow axle for a cab&chassis. I need either another whole axle or a set of 4:10 gears from a second generation 10.25 Sterling with the long pinion (and yoke, too).

    I know that is a lot to digest, but I am trying to keep the project as simple as possible. My yoke and pinion are flopping around and I am guessing it was driven that way for a while, hauling a trailer full of cattle.

    Thanks, that might have to work. I already have the housing, axles and LS diff, just need the gears and yoke. I have a few possibilities that I have to call (to make sure they are not short pinion units), will contact you if they do not pan out.

    Geez, it has been over a year. I sent a PM, want to find out if you still have gears and yoke.

    Dont know why I thought of this earlier but lucky I checked back. I bet I still have the gears but I know I dont have any yokes. My bronco blew one out this summer and I discovered I didnt have any left.

    Okay, I may still be interested in the gears if they are different from the short spline, or are all pinions cut the same, only the yoke splines became longer?

    Frank,

    I am definitely interested in the gear set whenever you have time to take apart the rear end. I can source long spline yokes around here pretty easily.
