If you find a '72-or-older donor with discs, you still have to compare bill of material numbers and double-check components for fit. Besides, older disc brake 44s are scarce compared to the '73-and-up 44 shown. And you'll still have the thinner axleshafts and small U-joints. Like we said, unless you just enjoy the challenge, do yourself a favor: Find a complete later disc brake axle and swap it in.
