8" Ford Rear info.Wanted.
I am currently collecting parts etc. for our '27 T Roadster project. Being a light 'Rod I have stumbled upon an 8" Rearend,Housing only ,NO AXLES or Brakes etc.,(plus a 3.00 gear centre). The housing measures 52 3/4" wide. What I would like to know is its overall width Axle to Axle or Drum to Drum. Also,any idea what it might be out of from my very sketchy info.. I need something arround 56" O/A width.
The owner has had it for many years and can't remember what it came out of. As I'm not too familiar with Ford stuff, I thought I would come to the Experts !!!.
What I do know is that these Rear Ends when supplied in Australian Built cars (1967-1970 Ford Falcons and Fairlanes) were arround the 58-59" wide(Drum to Drum). But I don't have one to measure the Housing width.
Any help would be appreciated.........Barry.M
