Is it possible to tell spline count from axle tag?
Just wondering if i need to actually pull the axles and count, or if i could decode from my tag. Rear is a 9". Also was wondering about bearing sizes, if there was any way to tell those without disassembly.
Axle was under a 74 Gran Torino
axle tag reads as such as far as i can tell
2 75 9 844B
so i know it's an open carrier with a 2.75 ratio, that the ring gear is actually 9" that it was assembled on a monday of July in 74 (4GA)
Also i got a used gear set for my rear i was planning on swapping out (why i would like to know bearing sizes ect) and it's ring gear is quite a bit smaller than 9". it's an original FoMoCo gear set that i got used in great condition, it's 3.56 which i've heard is supposed to be uncommon, anything i should know about the smaller ring gear? or should i get a set of newer gears in a diff ratio that will actually have a 9" ring gear
Thanks for the help
