Can you Identify if this is an open vs limited slip at a glance
sure, if I were able to glance into the axle holes, and see if the side gears are one piece or two pieces (the second piece is the hub for the clutch)
is that carrier for that housing? the bearing in the second picture does not look pressed on al;l the way
I’m with squirrel, can’t tell from those pictures

limited slip or Trac-Lok? take a look at https://www.quickperformance.com/ford-8-inch-trac-lok-posi-unit_p_16014.html & kevinstang.com
On a 9" Trac-Lok the ring gear bolts are recessed into the clutch cover. I think the 8" is the same.
Yours looks like an open.
By the way, the Ford 9/8" clutch type limited slips suck because there isn't room for a proper pair of clutch packs. They just get a few disks on one axle shaft that wear rapidly.
Not sure if this helps, but this is the Auburn Locker I put in the 8" in my Model A
It helps one way...we now know it's not one of those.
I think its open.
Id like to try an Eaton Tru Trac if I can afford it
