Rear end I.D.

Can someone help me ID this rear end. I am told it was off a Lincoln but year was unknown. WMS to WMS is 63.5". Bolt pattern is 5 on 5.

I need to shorten it by 2 inches. Axles are tapered so I am guessing will need new, but what about brakes. Are they easy to find/rebuild?

Thanks for any help.

Without the ID tag ... most everything is at best a educated guess ...



But I would guess a mid to late 70's Lincoln. They are not very desirable for most rodders because of the width. Also the wheel bolt pattern. Brake parts are expensive when you can find them.

Most of the time, it is more economical to just find a 9 inch Ford the width you need and add a disc brake kit to it.

Some of the late 60's Torinos and the 71 to 73 Mustangs were already in the width range you need ... from the factory. There are others also.

Thanks for the reply Deuce.

From what you say it seems like I would be better of just buying the whole thing from currie of moser? It's tough finding a decent junkyard around here let alone with any old mustangs or Torinos in it.

I sometimes forget that not everyone is blessed with a 80 acre ... in business since the 40's ... junk yard about 15 miles from their house.
