The Fairlane has what looks like a Dana 44 rear axle,but can not find out of what vehicle,the caliper works but the hand brake mechanism is frozen solid so need to remove and sort it out but do not want to start without knowing what it came off if i need any parts or seals.
So can any of you recognize it from the pics below.
And before you say it,no i can not see any numbers on the axle housing.

I don't know exactly and can't understand why but the chances are if it's a Dana it's a volvo axle of some kind. Why that would be under a fairlane beats me though.

Hi,thanks for the reply.
Somewhere along the way the original axle and leaf springs were removed and this axle fitted on coil over shocks and some sort of 4 link system,the description when i bought it said it was a 3.75 LSD unit
but have not had chance to find out whether it is.
The thing that is confusing me is that the calipers look as if they are a fixed type not a sliding type i would have expected for a single piston unit,or have i got that wrong.

There's no reason why they should be sliders. I'd prefer fixed callipers with a piston both sides over sliders any day.

Yes but this caliper has only one piston and the E brake lever is in the centre of it.
