I want to double check something, from my knowledge of what a ford 9" rear end looks like it has no axle cover at the back like other rear ends but the third member or pumpkin section is bolted in at the frt and contains the bolts all around the carrier where it mounts to the housing. Is this correct? Are there other ford rear end assemblies that are the same or similiar to what a 9" looks like but is not a ford 9" rear end?
Reason I'm asking is I've come across a 1979 Ford Granada with the 6 cyl. but has a Ford 9" rear end at the back (or what I think is a ford 9"
. Like I described earlier there is no axle cover at the back of the housing when I looked underneath and I'm trying to confirm that it has a 9" in the car.
I'm amazed at the fact that this vehicle may have a 9" rear end in it but with a 6 cyl. engine. Even my parts car (77) with a 351W and pan filled C4 doesn't have a 9" ford rear end in it. I'm trying to get the 79 car too for parts (want the axle assy. if it is a 9"
for project sleeper. Need to know soon as I'm going to see about getting the car tomorrow (it is at a used car lot here in Toronto, guy wants $500 bucks for it but I'm trying to get it for less, a lot less). TIA.
