I need a new rearend for my F 250 Super Duty. the tag on it reads S 406 H on the top of the tag and it reads 3.73 1051F07 on the bottom of the tag. The rear end I found reads S 413 B on the top of the tag and reads 3L73 1051C27 on the bottom of the tag. Will this rear end work ?

Wow, that is a good question....

Have you tried to post on any Ford Truck forum ? There are many technicians that will help you.

IOk, I have this site I found for used parts, enter your specs and check the options at the end, it will mention the S406H but not S413B.

Used parts

Try to enter different years and models to see if you can match second tag numbers

If you were to call French Lake auto salvage and talk to them I am sure they could tell you.They are in Annadale phone I believe.Or maybe just google.

If the spring mounts, the U-joint bracket and the gear ratio are the same it should work, or at least I can't think of a reason it wouldn't

They have different versions, drum brake/disk brake, ABS, non ABS, posi, non posi, dual wheel / single wheel.

The first set of numbers on bottom line of tag is actual ratio, as you can see 3:73.

These are mostly Dana axles, all 3 mfg have basically same unit (Dana 60 light duty, Dana 70, and Dana 80)

There is a threshold of compatibility between them, but answer has to come from somebody with knowledge.

I went on a Ford Truck forum with this same info and I got a reply back. The person said it should be a perfect match. He also stated that the one I found has limited slip, which my old one didn't have. Is this a good thing?

Limited slip is a great thing to have on a truck. Say if one tire is on ice and just spinning the other tire will lock up a bit and will kick you off the ice. This is from my understanding, unfortunately I haven't experienced it first hand as I don't have a new enough truck for it.

What you found is absolutely correct. The axle you have on your truck is a non-limited spil 3.73 10.5" rear end. That is what the 105 is in the second number.

The second axle is the same gear ratio and includes the limited slip rear end. It is a perfect match and yes the limited slip is a good thing.

Factory LS is not the greatest in limited slip options, but its better than having an open diff. If you've ever been on snow or ice and spinning the wheels you know that you were only spinning 1 wheel. That is what an open diff is. When you add the limited slip it will use friction plates within the differential to slow down the spinning wheel and apply power to the wheel that is not spinning. It shares the power from the tranny between both wheels. This helps you get more traction.

The Ford 10.5" rear end is a very stout unit. The Sterling 10.5 has only been in the Superduty trucks so you know it will match.

The only thing I would suggest is having the exle looked at by a driveline place. Make sure all the bearing s and seals are good and that the fluid has been checked. An install kit (what you use if you were to replace the ring and pinion gears)has all new seals and bearings and is not that expensive. Having the limited slip may require a synthetic gear lube or one with a friction additive since it has the limited slip.

Just because it is not an exact match doesn't mean it wouldn't work. Although the length of the Dual/Single thing wouldd have a pretty large impact, but the spring mounts are probably gonna be different on those too.

IMO, limited slip has good points and bad points.

If the ground you are spinning on is relatively flat, no big deal. However, if the ground you are on is sloped - even a little - the rear end will slide out toward the downhill side if you spin with a limited slip. They can get a bit squirrely under some conditions. I've had some interesting situations occur on crowned roads w/icy conditions or on muddy side hills....

As far as I know (I used to own a superduty), they have all had 4-wheel discs for brakes, you already found the difference in LS or non-LS and then the dual/single rear wheel thing.

Ford doesn't use the 10.5" for the dually trucks. It is a Dana 80 I believe, same thing as in the Dodges.

Anyway, any Sterling 10.5" rear end will work for you.

I would like to thank everyone for their advice and helpful information. We got the rear end in yesterday morning and every thing went together perfect. Just a heck of alot of work when we did it with out the truck on a hoist. Took her out for a drive and it runs great.

Thanks Again Freckles

PierBridge,

"My Cousin Vinny"

But it was Alabama (or some southern state) mud, not snow/ice. This would be Minnesota's version I guess!!! tongue.gif

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has released a draft operational plan for management of the Sand Dunes State Forest, located in central Sherburne County, about 3 miles west of Zimmerman. The draft operational plan will undergo a 45-day public review from June 21 to August 4. Members of the public are invited to read the draft plan on the DNR’s website and provide comments through an online form; both are located at www.mndnr.gov/forestry/sand-dunes. The DNR will hold a public meeting to discuss the plan on July 10, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the Big Lake High School cafeteria; 501 Minnesota Ave., in Big Lake. Members of the public will be invited to interact with DNR staff and learn more about the draft plan. The meeting will begin with an open house, followed by a brief DNR presentation about the plan and, conclude with an open microphone session. Last summer, the DNR organized a group of local residents, government leaders and other interested people to provide perspective and advice on management issues in the Sand Dunes State Forest. The group held six open meetings, and there were often additional people in the audience who joined in the discussion. These citizen-centered discussions helped shape the new draft plan released this week. Sand Dunes State Forest, established by the Minnesota Legislature in 1945, includes about 6,000 acres of land owned and managed by the state. It features pine plantations, rare sand dunes, wetlands, woodlands, oak savanna and prairie and is home to more than two dozen rare plants and animals. The forest is a popular recreation destination for hikers, horseback riders, hunters, campers and others. For ongoing news regarding Sand Dunes State Forest and future meetings of the advisory group, sign up for email updates . Enter an email address and then select Sand Dunes State Forest from the drop down list.  Visit www.mndnr.gov/forestry/sand-dunes for notes and resources related to the meetings.

      Welcome FM Chevy!  There's lots of fish to be caught in the Mighty Mississippi.  Plenty of spots to fish from shore right in or near Hastings as well as a little up river by the Wakota Bridge.  The great thing about the river is you never know what you are going catch. Carp, Suckers, Catfish, Walleye, Sauger, Bass, Gar, Big Ol' Snapper, Leather Necks etc..Cats are just starting to spawn so they might be a little challenging and inconsistent right now.  Try some live bait straight line rigs or cranks and keep moving.  I usually don't spend more then 20-30 mins in an area before I move on.  Good luck and let us know how you do!

      One word comes to mind for the catfish bite the past couple weeks, CHALLENGING.  The spawn is in full swing and it seems that nearly all the fish went to the nest at the same time.  As always, there are fish to be caught but we have to work a little harder to find them.  The best spots have been tight to structure for smaller fish with the bigger fish being very close to a drop off or areas of current.  Sit times have been 25-35 minutes to let the bigger fish find the bait and decide to bite it.  One good tactic has been to change from circle hooks to regular J style hooks and be quick on the hook set for the shorter bites.  Bait has been try it all and see what is working at any given time.  Stink baits have been working great for smaller fish.
        This weekend is the 3rd Scheels Boundary Battle Catfish Tournament.  Even with the less than stellar report many fish will be caught and weighed in this event that brings out some of the best anglers in the area and beyond.  We still have a few spots remaining if you wish to fish.  For more information www.boundarybattle.com and to enter call Brad Durick 701-739-5808
        Join us for the weigh ins, Saturday about 2-3pm at the Whopper John Little (north) Boat Landing in Grand Forks and Sunday at LaFave Park in East Grand Forks.  Awards to follow on Sunday.

      I'm not sure if it's a Minnkota or other after market brand. Cabela's service center installed it and provided the quick release mount. When I took it back to them and showed the problem, they did not question the failure. Look at the lock on yours and see if when you push the locking lever over if the part of the lock is plastic or some other type non metallic material. The stub on the bottom of the motor itself is metal and connects to the plastic in the base. That's where the issue of failure lies.. If your is plastic too, then I'd question the safety and complain to who ever sold you that mount and get one that is much stronger and will not crumble like mine did.. Good luck.. I'll post the results after I find out what Cabela's comes up with... Kaz

      Thanks! I'm glad to be here and so far absolutely love this state. The cold didn't bother me one bit and I learned that ice fishing is fun.    People look down on spinnerbaits? Never heard that but it wouldn't bother me if they did. I'll fish my way and they can fish their way.   Roland is absolutely right. I've noticed that there seem to be an abundance of bass in that 2-5 pound class, at least where I fish. I hardly ever find a skinny bass, they're all footballs.   Really I enjoy the pike though. They are great fighters and great tasting. Of course we don't have those down south and I've really grown to appreciate them.
