9" ford housing

Hello, I'm new to forum. I have a 9" Ford rear end on a 32 rod. I'm trying to figure out what oil seal fits inside housing. I pulled axle and it doesn't have a seal, so I have no idea what will fit. Seal needs to be 2.53 o.d.and axle diameter is 1.53. Anyone have any idea what seal I need ? Thank you in advance.

Re: 9" ford housing

You should be able to go to your local auto parts store and get the seals. At least that's all i do. Make up a year etc of galaxie if you have to since most go by what the computer tells them. Or got to NAPA auto parts and they can look at their books. Hopefully they still do that!

Always be yourself, because the people that matter don't mind, and the ones who mind, don't matter.

Some 9” housings do not use a seal in the axle tube. There should be an o ring on the outer diameter of the axle bearing. The bearing itself is sealed in this application. It is possible for the bearing to leak, which would require a new bearing.
