    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)

    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.

  8. Not sure if this helps, but this is the Auburn Locker I put in the 8" in my Model A Auburnfor8in.jpg
