Ford 9" Questions...

Hi All,

I have a Ford 9" 4-pinion traction-lok unit that I pulled apart today. This unit was advertised as "ready to run", but while disassembling it was found to have all bolts just above finger tight. Everything inside looks good (even the clutches) except for two things. The sheetmetal spring coverplate is broken, and the outer shell of the case has a few places where the clutch tab retainer slots are machined too close to the ring gear bolt holes and you can see daylight through these spots. Is this normal? I've heard Currie makes a billet cover plate, but haven't seen it available separately and don't know if it'll even "bolt on" without additional machine work. Does anyone know for sure or have a part number?

Thanks!

Russ
