Post rear end sizes

Someone, a while back, ask about sizes, flange to flange, of Ford rears, to be able to fit one under their machine. A member gave a Ford web site that gave the flange to flange measurements and the year and make car to find it in. This was very helpful, but, I'm getting that "parttimers disease" and forgot to write it down........would the person who posted this site, please do it again. Thankx, and remember to write your US Senators about the scrappage bill S1766 section 308

Guys you are spending a lot of money on ford rear ends when you don't have to. A GM or Chrysler rear end will work in 99 % of the hot rods being built. You can get them for half the price and use the rest of the money for something else. I started these sites so I could tell you how to save money. Well one of the biggest ways is to use your head and not do what the jones do. ROY

thats what I was thinking every where I looked they want a small fortune for ford rears except the gears,I have an 8.5 410 posi from a camaro and negotiating for a 64 fairlane do you think the rear will stand up to a 460 ford engine,the rear was professionally done by our local expert, all he does is rears....... useing something you have is always cheaper than buying somthing else

Check out roys hot rod garage racing page that blue firebird has a 8.5 posi in it . It has a 468 big block chev on juice and has held up since 1993. Yes I think they will work. ROY

Thanks for the fast replies fellows, I already have my rear......I found a wrecking yard that for $25.oo, you pull it and if you can carry it, its yours. I got my Mustang 8.8 for $25 bucks. I was posting about the sizes for a friend who, like me wants to keep his 46 Ford,,,"all Ford", when you can get the parts cheap, "Why Not"

Roy is right. I am running a Chevy 8.5 inch posi under my rod ( a 30 A model highboy coupe- 350 330 HP) It does a good job, The only rule to hot rodding is that there are no rules!
