Well the 8" rear axles work in a 9" housing? I can get a 9" housing cut down for $100. Thanks Jim
Yes, as long as it's a 28 spline rear end and not a 31 spline.
Interesting. I junked 2 70's and both had the 8". I sold 1 69.5 and have one now and both are 7.5. Typical of Ford I guess.
Am running that combo in my race car now. Be sure the 9in has the small bearing ends or purchase new ones from an aftermarket source such as Moser or Currie.
I didn't know the offered the 7 1/2'' in a car that old. learn something new everyday.
7.5 was in the early Falcons too if memory serves.
While working on my bro's car, we're thinking about swapping the drive train of my parts car into his Falcon.
THanks for input Old guy and Matt Williams
I too was to understand that all v8 only necessarily had the 8" rear-end. Regardless, my 72 250 has a 7.5" stock..
Not trying to be mean....but I don't think that is true unless somebody changed it. Give us the axle code off of the data sticker and we can tell you for sure.
My 74 4d 200/C4 Comet has an 8 inch stock. I know this to be fact as it has always been in my family.
Anyone know if you can use 31 spline axles on a small bearing 9"?
Moser has ready bolt in 9" rears for 855.
Ready as in you give them dimensions and they make everything.
New HD housing, new Moser axles up to 35 spline, your choice of axle tubes, and some misc stuff... No diff, carrier, or brakes. Still sounds pretty good.
So the reason I ask is I would like to get an HD housing with small bearings and might as well use 31 splines since the price is the same. Small bearings will allow me to do the Exploder disc brake swap.
ok....my mav is a 71..... the rear end i got is from a 79 granada
the granada is 8inch from what the junkyard told me..........measures 49.75" from inside drum to inside drum
the maverick rear end is in the car still and it measures............51.5 from inside drum to inside drum
isnt the 8inch from granada a wider track than maverick?
what gives? am i missing something?
That doesn't look like a door code.
