Question Rear Diff.

About to be getting the rear axle overhauled on my '60 Bird.

Aren't our stock rear diff's like a Ford 8.75" instead of the more common 9"?

AXLE bearings are the larger size. Bearing # is 88128R. Oil seal # is 51098. Housing end gaskets are Fel-Pro #10720 (requires 4).

(is that what you were asking?)
