9 inch? What do I have?

Hey Guys,

I bought my 66 Fairlane and was told it has a 9" rear. I can see it has a third member but how can I tell if it is a 9"?

Thanks in advance,
Scott

This should help.

Kevinstang's Ford Nine Inch Differential Page +

typically the big block cars got the 9, if you car came with a 289 then its an 8 inch unless someone swapped in a 9. Either way the above page should help.
