    Mine is not so greasy, check close at pinion seal area.



    Yeah, I know …. could use a cleaning & wax, huh?

    Mine also has a different cover look, but same number of bolts and internal parts same. Not sure why Ford changed cover shape though. To find mine here, I looked at a '79 Pinto at Rock Auto.

    To find your gasket, I looked up a '75 model Pinto. I think Ford used them both as they came off the train maybe. You have Ford 9" drum brakes.

    Can't edit my prior post here now, but I meant to also point out that one 6.75" Ford rear has a cover shape of essentially 8 sides …… while the other is like 4 sided square with round large radius corners.The gaskets show it well, so even if bolt pattern was same, there would not be a seal at corners. As far as I could ever find out, other components are same, seals, bearings, etc. Shafts were shortened with housings, and re-splined by Lehman or a contractor of thiers.

    If you ever see leakage …. fix it asap to save those axles if possible.

    I did discover that these axles were used in some early Ranger pickups and Bronco IIs as well as Pintos, Bobcats, maybe even 4 cyl Mustang IIs. I think more than adequate for our use.

    Here's a better pic of mine without hitch parts in the way which is unlike yours in respect to cover shape/style. Pic from way back in 2004 when I bought it.
