Is a D front axle narrower than a DC (not row crop)? I currently have a D axle under my DC and have been curious. I could also really use the axle spacer for it if anyone has one. I know John has 'em new, but used would be great since I'm on a tight budget. And hey if anyone wants to trade a DC front end for a D let me know!

Just to get the termonology right-DC-3 is the row crop version with the both the narrow and wide fronts sticks out beyond the radiator. The D has fixed rear and front with small tires that the DC tractors. The DC-4 is the wide front where the axle sits under the radiator. the later DC-4s have the heart shaped part to hold the front axle and is more desireable than the older style fronts. DC-4 has adjustable rear wheels but front is not. As you know the D rear axle is not adjustable. You should be looking for a DC-4 axle.

Yes I know the difference, thanks for the info though. I'd most like a DC-4 front end, but if the D is the same width, I'll leave it on there and just get the spacer. If not the same width, I'd like to find either a DC-4 or even a DC-3 narrow front end. Really don't care which, I just want it to sit right and not have the front narrower than it should be (if using the wide front). Hope that makes sense.

The D and DC-4 front axle is the same thing. The spindles are different. The front spindles are lower and that gives the front axle more ground clearance on the DC-4. The spacer that fits on the axle on the DC-4 will fit a D.

I tried to PM you, but it's under construction. I'll try again later.

I am very confused and facinated with this subject. Not having a profound knowledge of front axles that were used on the various models. Maybe, someone could post some pictures of the different front end set-ups and configurations. I learn best with pictures. No I'm not from the "Show me state" but should be. gobble

This is my D axle under a DC, note the spindles are nearly even with the body of the axle.
