So this rebuild kit is a kit that will get you the same results as the Ford Racing Complete Diff will, except instead of buying a completely new diff, you'd just be disassembling your diff and swapping your old components out for the items in this kit. It will work to transfer the torque of both wheels evenly, which will have a few benefits in both street and track applications. Yeah I know high pinion rear is driving on the coast side of the gears, never broke it and it took severe beatings. However, there is one exception: An extremely worn clutch-plate-style limited-slip differential may act like an open differential because the plates are so severely worn. The typical application for this axle is the V-6 Mustang. The axle shaft groove and C-washer are shown at left. The friction plates need to be soaked in the correct friction modifier prior to installation.
This pin shows signs of typical wear and can safely be re-used. They are machined with the axle housing and are a matched set to the housing locations. Let it sit for at least 1 hour and then go back and tighten again. Some applications for the differential are the F150 and S197 2005 present V-8 Mustangs. Once the differential is removed from the axle and the ring gear is off, the next step is to remove the differential pin bolt and push the differential pin out. Depending on the mileage and wear on the axle, it may make more sense to just replace the entire unit. Crazy thing is, you probably have a decent amount of experience, but right now you are just coming off as immature ur posts.
Some enthusiasts mix and match different parts from multiple differentials in an attempt to repair a worn-out unit. Place the spring in this position and give it a good wrap with a brass or dead blow hammer until it pops into the housing, then tap it down until it is in the correct position. Here, I have rotated the differential so that the differential pin is accessible. In addition, this book provides a comprehensive identification chart to ensure readers properly identify the model and specifics of the 9-inch differential. Now simply reverse order for installation. Torque the bolts to 70-85 lb-ft using a crisscross pattern.
This indicates the gears are a matched set. If it does, it artificially increases the runout values. Unlike a pinion crush sleeve, which can be used just once, the spacer can be used over and over. This is common and nothing to be concerned about. The housing was dried with compressed air. The order is as follows: side gear G , reaction plate, friction plate, reaction plate, reaction plate, friction plate, reaction plate, friction plate and shim G-R-F-R-R-F-R-F-S.
If installed one tooth off, the differential pin does not line up correctly left. Both tires spin at the track now. It is also a good idea to replace the bolt, if possible, or at least re-apply a thread locker before final installation. Also, the vibration damper is installed on the axle just in front of the jack. It's an upgrade over the factory diff components, unless you have an '03 to '04 Cobra, and in that case, it's an exact replacement. Some applications are the Fox chassis 1979 to 1993 Fairmont, Zephyr, Mustang, Thunderbird, Granada, etc.
Basically, it would be the path of least resistance. Carefully remove the clutch pack and shims with each side gear. I hope this helps some people and as always if you have any questions feel free to contact me. Place the small gears in the correct teeth so that when you rotate it back into place they will line up with the holes that the axles slide through. Tear-Down Process Every rear end has a differential see Chapter 1. Keep in mind that the downside to a tightly assembled and heavily preloaded limited-slip differential is additional wind-up and potential chatter and pops as the plates transition from sticking to slipping.
Despite modern-day catalog conveniences, some, like yours truly, stick close to our roots. If it is not, use the retention bolt to rotate the pin to the correct orientation. But an offroad axle must handle a multitude of variations of torsionsal stress - all conceivable angles. If you yank and bang on the differential pin, there is a good chance that the differential pin hole will be damaged. Also, both of these packs come with the correct clutch pack height and shims to match the factory specifications. Organize your eBooks into a custom library and annotate pages.
You must remove the ring gear because you have to take the s-spring out. Put these in and it doesn't do a one wheel wonder anymore and both tires spin at take off Installation Time: Afternoon May 15, 2018 Solid feel this whole adventure started due to a leak in the rear end. Before we began reassembly, we took the 8. Make certain that the tool is grabbing the back side of the bearing race and not the cage. Specific details for Mustangs but not all of the years are also reviewed. You may want to sand down the ends of the axle shafts a little to make it a little better.
A new friction plate is approximately 0. So take the time now to make certain that the pin goes easily in place right. There are a few methods to do this. If the pin shows extreme wear, you may have to cut the pin in order to remove it. Take your time and be patient; these can be tricky to install. Always keep track of shims and the order of friction plates and steel plates so you can reassemble them in the same order. In some instances the rotors or drums are rusted tight and cannot be easily removed.
