mike bryan Thanks guys for your thoughts. I am sure that there are plenty of 9 inch ford rearends around fairbanks. This one is clean and ready to roll for the right application. Not alot of rodders up here in the far north and most of the projects and cars I am aware of are already built. I am one of the few who have a project going. I am not out anything on this rear except for a little acetylene, time and the cost of the flange ends. I may just store the housing for another project down the road. That is if I can make some headway with the current project. Thanks again. Mike

Pony Here in WA you can buy complete 9" open rear end for around $100, As musky2 said it's a supply and demand kind of thing. A lot of 9' rear ends were made and the ones used in trucks and hi performance applications wound up with stronger housings, bigger bearings, bigger brakes, posi, ect. The factory h/p cars with posi also got a Nodular iron center housing. It was much stronger than the stock cast iron unit. Most likely and factory h/p Torino would have this as part of the h/p option package.

9 inch rear

I see! ; Anybody know the truth about the Torino rears being very strong ? I believe its something about the iron content in the making . I think the value of the rear is the availability of them in the area ; like I said around here they are easy to get a hold of but Im out in the country and there are so many old Ford trucks sitting around. I dont know what they are going for at the junk yards because I do all my scavegeing at a scrap-yard : they just crush everything that comes in and dont sell parts to the common person . Ive got to know the owners and I am only one of about three people that they deal with selling parts to. thanks Mike

mike bryan Musky2- The new ends are simply to replace the ends that were on the rearend. When I cut this rear out of the truck it was under I found the bearings pretty well shot and the races were a bit gouged. Since I was having the rear narrowed I thought it best to replace the flange ends at the same time and save trouble down the road. Again, another much better set up came my way and so this old rear and new flange ends are up for grabs. Mike

9 inch Ford

Hi , I cant answer for sure ; I get 9s here real cheap , all rears the same where I go. Of course posis or lockers are worth more . The 31 spline are I guess stronger , maybe worth more. I was wondering what is the significense of the Torino ends? Ive heard the Torino and Ranchero rears are the strongest but what would be the difference in the Torino ends and the truck ends ; you said it was a 31 spline truck rear ; why would you buy Torino ends for it? The 31 spline truck should have big bearing ends already. Im just asking so I might learn something new. thanks Mike

In any event it is stripped down(no more shock mounts or spring purchases). Any idea if it is worth anything if I were to try and sell it? I have got a new set of Torino flange ends for it from 9+ that I would sell with the housing. The third member is in decent shape but it is geared at 3.00. Any thoughts as to its value would be helpful. Thanks. Mike
28 spline or 31 spline?
