No problem Bryon - any idea why this date was on opposite side of the 860 casting location where the foundry stamp would be. And as a follow-up to my thread, where is the 341 casting number?  We can't find it in the spot where they are on the 860s.

Rob, if the axle is installed in the car - the casting date is normally in the vertical "webbing" area on the center section.  May not been in exactly the same place on every axle. Casting date on the "horizontal" webbing area.  See these  pics.  I can try to take look to verify over the weekend on some of my 341 housings that I have in storage.  If my memory is right, you will be on the drivers side, and have to look down from above to see the casting number.

Bryon - the casting date was opposite side on passenger side where pics show foundry to be. But those pics reference an 860 casting and not 341. Darell and I did an extensive search and never found the casting number in the place it should be. Is it possible it wore off...jerry has it in the report. Thinking with these 341s that they, like the cast date, may be opposite side or different spot altogether.

Found a Google image of location and just found it 3969341NF...driver side of lower pumpkin facing forward. Maybe you have a new note...casting number location and casting date on 341s not in same location as 860s?  At least based on my location and the pics on this site of the 860s
