9 Inch Rear End

I don't know about trucks built in the U.S. But all F-150's sold in Canada up until 1989 were delivered with the bullet proof Ford 9 Inch rear differential as stock equipment. I'm surprised that your truck didn't come with the same equipment as original fitment. Maybe the three speed was the reason it was fitted with a lesser rear diff! I'm sure that you are going to upgrade to a proper 9" axle as the project proceeds. We can still find complete axle assemblies up here in Eskimo country with the large brakes for as little as $125 CAN dollars. Good luck with your latest project! May the Gods of "Internal Combustion" smile on you!

The Dana 44 is obviously not on equal par with a 9", but it will be plenty for this particular project. The motor is going to remain as a stock 302. BTW, you can see the Dana installed (as well as the rest of the progress so far) in my Cboy-Two journal located here http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/jour...81&action=view

Thanks for your support. I'm still an internet virgin and haven't worked out how to put pictures into my web responses yet. I'm still shopping for the right price on a digital camera up here in Eskimo Land. Once I figure out how to send pictures, I will send you something to look at. Thanks for your support. westfaliaguy.
