I had pulled a 351C - 4V engine out a completely demolished 1971 Torino.
It was slammed so hard that most of the engine peripherals were broken, icluding the exhaust manifolds. (My Dad thought I was nuts ... "expensive boat anchor")
So yeah, one of the exhaust ports had a big chunk missing out of it. Someone suggested taking it up to Ernie Symons in Rocanville, Saskatchewan ... as he was an expert welder. It turns out that this fellow was the inventor of the "Symons Oiler" pump oil can. Who knew?
BTW ... He fixed it up perfectly!

[QUOTE=S10 Racer;1577446]For what it's worth, I found this YouTube video of how they work.
I've seen that interesting video.. Since they have such a good warranty,I'd just like to have one apart to see the inside.

Fordification has a pretty good list of axle tag id's.
The Ranger Station has the Explorer width measurements you're looking for.
Interesting to note that they suggest welding the axle tubes to the center section.

|big gear head||I've sold a few, but I haven't had my hands on one. It's hard to sell a differential for $800+ these days.|

|prostreet6t9||Not to hijack the OP's thread.. Hey BGH.. Have you used any of the WaveTrac's yet? I've been doing quite a few and seem to be a killer piece. I wanna take one apart so I can check out the inside.. But with a Limited Lifetime Warranty I figure I better leave it alone..|

I would pull cover and ID so you know for sure. The tooth count should be marked on the edge of the ring gear. You will see the clutch's if it's a Trac/Lok.
You never know if someone has done changes to the diff over the years and you could probably use fresh oil anyway. Use some additive if it's the Trac/Lok.

|big gear head||The L between the 3 and 73 says it's a Trac Lock.|

|flathead530||I was assuming that it was a 3.73 but wasn't sure that it was traction loc since the other tag didn't list limited slip additives as earlier ford tags had. Thank you for confirming.|

|big gear head||I'm assuming that you already know it's a 3.73 gear with the Trac Lock differential. I don't know what the other code it. What exactly is it that you want to know about this rear end?|
|07-25-2012 09:29 AM|
|flathead530||I don't have the capability to send pictures. It is an 8.8 Ford from a 1998 Explorer with tag code S613C also has 3L73 an R and a 7K15 on the tag. An other tag on the differential says 75W 140W Synthetic oil only (nothing about using additives).|

|big gear head||How about a picture or two?|
