Ok, now that i've gotten your attention. I'm a bit confused, i was told that my s/c has a 8.8 from a mustang. But, by looking at the back cover it looks like the normal 7.5... what ya'll think..

Hummmm...I get the funny feeling that somehow by helping you Vamp_77, I will end up being at the butt end of a joke..... :rolleyes:

That being said, on the right hand side of your differential, on the cover bolt should be an identification tag with the axle size (ie 7.5, 8.8), gear ratio and stamping number.

Hope that helps.

The ID tag is usually on one of the upper bolts, and I don't see it there. It does look a lot like the 7.5 in my Zephyr, you could always take the cover off and measure the ring gear, since it looks like your cover is leaking anyway.

Oh, I see that now. Nice pics. I'm not in that group anymore because they allow Chevy engine swap cars. I argued with Karl quite a bit about it. I help manage a new group that's Ford-only.
