Ford 9" Question...

Hi All,

I recently bought a used NASCAR locker off E-Bay that was advertised to fit either "B" or "E" cases, "B" being a 2.89 bore case and "E" being a 3.06 bore case.

I have the large bore 3.06 case and cannot find a carrier bearing to fit...because...this locker has some off the wall diameter bearing surface that's not stock (stock being 1.78" diameter and this locker being 1.62 diameter). I have contacted the seller and he's "looking into it". There are bearings to fit a "B" case and I can trade out with a bud in order to get it put together...but...this problem got me to thinking.

Could a spacer be used? It wouldn't be a problem to make one, it'd only have a wall thickness of 0.080" though...

Russ

Haven't called Motion (yet), but I did try and stumble through their online catalog. Wasn't much help there...

What you have is a pre-1970 locker. The change was made to 1.78" to accommodate 31 spline axles. I am not aware of a bearing with the 1.62/3.06 dimensions.

Since I'm already semi-screwed, I better go check and make sure it's a 31 spline (as advertised). Might have to go to plan "C"...

Phew! It's a 31 spline and a bud is gonna swap out my 3.06" case for a 2.89" case, so I'm good to go. The locker came with old bearings which are in good shape too...
