    Yes, that looks perfect. I’m going to call them tomorrow to see if fits but it looks like it will. Thanks! I ordered a falcon one from advance auto, it came it today but won’t fit properly.

    Here ya go... https://www.amazon.com/Fel-Pro-RDS13073-Rear-Axle-Set/dp/B000C2AM7W

    If you don't have a free shipping prime account for Amazon, Rock auto has it cheaper. Look up Driveline 1969 or 1970 Mustang with 200 engine.

    Somewhere here on forum there is a 5% Rock discount code. I just received a $200 plus order using it.

    If you want it locally ask for Fel-Pro RDS13073, most places will likely have to order it.

    OH well, I'm late.......

    The rds 13073 doesn’t look like it will fit, the bolt holes on the rear end look symmetrically spaced, the rds 13073 looks almost like it’s distorted.

    Can you post a picture of it? That is the number.

    I didn’t take the cover off yet so the 13073 may fit but it doesn’t look like it from the bolt locations on the cover.

    I don’t know if you can tell by the pic but it looks slanted, if that makes sense.

    Based on the replies, it looks like this is the correct one. I’ll pull the cover off in the next couple of days and see if it matches up. Thanks again!

    Ahhhhh .... gotcha. Take it out of the plastic. It bet it will square up and will be fine. That is the right gasket.

    Here is a 7.25 for those reading this thread.

    AFAIK there is only one 7¼" Ford rearend, uses same gasket whether it's in Falcon, Mustang or Maverick.

    Nice read end. . You are correct AGAIN.. Took it out of the package and it looks perfect. I guess I’m just a rookie! Thanks - you saved me again!
