It will vary ...........from vehicle to vehicle.

A Ford Econline has more than say.......a 69 Mustang.

A 68 Bronco has more than a 68 F100.

Thanks pro, that's what I got roughly without using any fancy levels. As you got it. it was the offset of the chunk rather than the housings end I was interested in.

Mine is apart so I measured the axles. 1 is 3" longer than the other.

Does that 3" longer axle put your pinion exactly in the middle? I plan on having my pinion 3\4" to the right and my calc was one axle just under 4" longer than the other but won't know for sure until I set it in place and take some measurements.

My pinion is in the middle and the housing is centered from the back also. I have an aluminum modular housing so it's been built to center that way. You can see where the center section mounts offset in the housing. Unfortunately with a factory housing you have to center the pinion or the housing or split the difference.

Thanks for the info. That all fits in with what I had roughly measured. This is the first 9" for me and they sit quite a bit different than 12 bolts so wanted to make sure I was on the right track in my thinking. That is a very serious looking car you are building. Looks great.
