There is no easy answer to that - you have to prowl salvage yards for 8" differentials (I assume it's an 8"). Some 6 cyl Granadas had 3.40, 3.55 and higher Some Pintos had 3.40 and higher numerically. The easiest is to spend a couple hundred, get a new set of gears and a rebuild set of bearings and seals as long as you have a good housing

WCZ-E 2.80:1 8 inch gear 5 =1965 C = March B = 2ND week in the month 911 should be the plant code. JMO and it will /should have 28 spline axles also. Actually by the #s it's a 7 3/4 ring gear but still considered a 8 when talking part's. JMO
The WCZ-E should be 7 3/4 Ring gear not the 8 inch gear the 8 will be WCZ-F code.

Posi rears are very rare for the 8 inch series Ford rear end. That is part of the reason most guys with the 8 inch UPGRADE to the Ford 9 inch. Posi rear are way more plentiful than the 8 inch ones.

Go here and rear about the 8 inch and 9 inch Fords ...

And look for a tag like this on your rear end.

The 8" Ford in 65 Mustangs mostly came with 2.80 gears which is the numbers on your tags. In 66, Mustangs came with 3.00 gearing. I don't know what vehicles had them but I know I had a 3rd member with 3.25 and my dad picked up a member with 3.80's at the junkyard (maybe got lucky?) I'd take Irelands advice and by a set of ring and pinion gears in the gearing you want and have a rearend shop install them. I'd advice you not to go over 3.50 in the Mustang with the C4 transmission. Anything over that and you'll be taching in the 3K range and higher. (No overdrive).

it's not what you asked for but the explorer 8.8 is almost the perfect size for the '65-'66 if you cut down the long side and use two short axles. 31 spline, limited slip, disc brakes, various gear ratios to be had at the junkyard for cheap. i bought one for $125. add another $150 or so to have it shortened (or do it yourself for less).

as for the 8", there are rebuilt units on ebay for $600-$800 with the gear ratio you need. they're nearly impossible to find in junk yards.
