Thanks for the link. I already have my third member together. What I need to know is the sequence to reassemble the rear end. How are the axle bearing installed, etc? Tom

what is done is to install the 3rd member into the housing and then the axles go in with the backing plates..bearings are pressed on the axles..4bolts hold everything in place..then all tha tis left is to install the brakes and drums and good to go..

Thanks. So, after I install the third member, I install the axles, with bearings already pressed on. When installing the axles, will the retainer plate, once bolted up to housing, pull the axle/bearing in and seat properly? Also, do you know where I could get an exploded view of the rear end? Tom

If you are using stock Ford retainer plates then the retainers must go on the axles before the bearings are pressed on. The axles and bearings will fit through the hole in the center of the brake backing plates. The backing plates will be sandwitched between the retainers and the housing ends. The bearings will stick out of the housing ends the same amount as the thickness of the backing plates so that the bearings will be flush with the backing plates when installed. The retainers will hold the bearings and axles in the housing with 4 T bolts and nuts. If you have the standard sealed ball bearings then you will need to install axle seals in the housing ends befpore you put the axles in. If you have the tapered roller bearings then the seals will be on the outer side of the bearings. DO NOT use axle seals in the housing ends if you have the tapered roller bearings.

Thanks for all the info. Now, if I just had an exploded wiew of the rear end...
