    Ford 8" Axle rebuild

    According to some sources the 8" axle can have a 7.75" crownwheel or an 8".
    What are the differences?
    Can an 8" crownwheel and pinion be used in a 7.75" case / carrier

    Answering my own question with a bit of internet searching:

    “The aftermarket considers this an 8 inch diff.
    Ford is being specific on the ring gear diameter. The diameter is determined by the number of teeth that are on the gear.
    If you were to get a different gear ratio it may measure 8 in or it may fall in between 7 3/4 in or 8 in. To get parts just refer to it as an 8 inch.”
