Does the 76 Lincoln Continental come with 9" and disc Brakes

Newbie here.
I've been trying to find a 9" with disc brakes for several month, luckly I went to the junkyard late yesterday and from reading on the forums here I knew that I could use the Lincoln disc brakes on my narrowed 9" housing and Axel that had a Versi disc setup. I bought it (they didn't give me any brakes parts) like that.

So I see this Continental Mark V with a 9" and disc brakes, and I went a pulled it today. This is one heavy rearend!

Question is did the Conti come with 9" and disc brakes?

Yes, the seventies CONTINENTAL/MARK SERIES could be had with rear disc. The only problem is that the caliper mounting bracket is also the wheel bearing retainer and is hard to adapt to another rear axle tube (and the bolt pattern is 5 X 5").

I think you will find it easier to adapt the eighties MARK rear disc to your housing as adaptors are readily available to accept these brakes.

Does this help?

I do have it front of me and can ID it, however I didn't know that the Conti had a 9" with disc brakes and that was my question, looking at the brackets on the axel I now know that it is the same as my narrowed 9" housing and axels. The brackets matchup (looks alike and measures the same) so all I need to do now is pull the brakes parts and try to get rid of the rearend.
I think I got lucky.

The tag on the Conti readend reads like this:
WGB-Y 6MD
2 75 9 4624

I know it's a 2.75 geared 9" and not a posi (no L) but I don't know much more about it, is it a 28 or 31 spline axels? and how can you tell if it's
4 or 2 pin carrier?

Kultulz:
It appears that this setup will work on my existing axels because it has the same caliper mounting brackets which is the retainer of the wheel bearings.

Thanks for you help.

Could the Y possibly be a V or X?

Can I have that rear end please? please? I KNOW I can break it somehow! put it in a dune buggy with a powerstroke and put dualie 31x18.50 sportsmans and tie it to a house..... too bad I don't have the money.... DANG! id have a demoltion company going in no time, and a wheelie buggy. now for the turbo kit....... Oh, sorry, that 9" would already be dust. Just saying I could kill it. then again, I might have a little trouble killing the 88 taurus I have laying around.... I could rip it in half and still not kill it unless the engine flops over from the busted motor mounts. It'll stay worth the same:scrap value!
