Anyone know if LubeLocker makes a gasket for my front Dana 44 Differential Cover on my 78 Bronco? Anyone have a part#....

They do. I have one on my D44, but I don't have a part number off the top of my head as the shop who did my locker/gear install ordered it.

I saw that one but it’s not the shape of my front dana 44. This is the proper shape they have on amazon. I think it would fit but not totally sure...

I just use RTV but that gasket shown looks like it would work ok.

I will say the cover will need to be pretty flat for any gasket to work, even that high dollar one.

Also both pics shown are the same gasket just one is turned 90 degrees

Gotya. I read pros and cons for the gasket. Wonder what Ford used for sealing the differential covers during production? Sealant or Gaskets

Probably in the olden days a gasket, nowadays probably RTV

Alot of oil pans don't use a gasket now, just RTV

If you are using the stock stamped steel pan, honestly i would use just RTV. Just make sure both surfaces are absolutely oil free.

I have used one on my 77 F100 D44 and it was the correct shape and worked just fine.

Not sure I would trust any of the pictures to be accurate....would go by the description.

Think I’m going with RTV. I have used that on my jeeps in the past with never an issue. I’m sure the LubeLocker gasket is a great product too and has great reviews which is why I considered it. Thanks all!

Am I missing something? Aren't those both the same shape, just rotated 1/4 turn from each other?
