    Edit: I was told it was off a Ford passenger car, possibly a ranchero. Measures 61” wheel to wheel mounting surface.

    That is a 31 spline.

    That’s a 31 spline, IIRC.

  7. I am building a 9 inch for my Cameo, and just lucked into 3 31 spline 9 inch pumpkins. I needed a new pumpkin, because the one I am replacing is the 9 3/8ths unit out of a full sized Ford, and the gear ratio sucks out loud.
    They are still out there, but a little luck helps.

  8. The pictures above look like rear end came out of a pickup, springs are above the rear end. Id the bolt pattern 4-1/2" car, or larger?

    6C4A99F6-459E-4ADC-BB8B-D82C51F484B6.png It was off a gasser parts car I purchased. 5x4.5 bolt pattern. Roughly 61.
    Edit: I was thinking it was 31 spine by the looking at the top pic and the identification info I found on the internet.

    I recently purchased a nice 9" ford rear end from Jeff in Aloha, OR that advertises on Portland CL. He just happened to be sitting on a 9" housing for a Maverick that the guy didn't come back for. approx. 57" WMS to WMS. He centered the pinion, added a brand new Yukon durigrip, 3:70 gears, torino bearings, hardened axles. He normally doesn't have a housing so if you find what you want he can build it for you. Works out of his house and knows his stuff! And he is in your backyard @Firedup

    I paid him a small deposit, took about a week to get the gears I requested and build it out. I paid more 20 years ago for a rear end this nice. I have his cell number if you are interested PM me.

    Shortened 9" out of a '59 Ranch Wagon in my '31. Even came with a "N" case. Don't be afraid to go scrounging, it's half the fun!

    Axles were drilled for both 5 on 4 3/4 and 5 on 4 1/2. I will use this guy over and over! What a great find locally.

    Thanks Bandit Billy. I was actually looking at that ad quite a bit. I was after the 61” rear end. Glad to hear he does nice work. I may give him a call eventually. In my backyard is a bonus.

    I think what you have there is a 65 to 68 Econoline rear end. 9" with 3.50 gears, spring perches on top, 10" brakes, big bearings, and a 4.5" bolt pattern. It is the same rear as a 60 to 64 Full size Ford with the spring perches on top.

    Could a guy flip that Econoline diffy over, unbolt and rotate the center section 180 degrees to get the perches on the bottom?

    You'd have to relocate the breather hole too.

    Cool, thanks for the info. I was hoping someone would help me identify it.

    I pulled the driver side axle. Looks like I got a 28 spline.
     
  24. Those look like ass :). Run a stocker or slightly modified stocker........Olds would be good. I've only had 2 rear shortened by Currie and both times were a pain, between up selling (one rear had a bent tube so they said with no leaks or noise) or missing hardware (they never want to give back the T bolts, even though they wanted the rear end complete and bolted together). Next time, I'll use Cooks machine.

    I found enough deviations from the "identify spline count by registration snout pattern" method, to render it meaningless.
