Model T Ford Forum: Classifieds: What Years Range Is My Rear End? What Do I Buy?

What year ranges is my rear end pictured?

This is a rear end rebuilt some years ago. I'm going to open it up to see if the thrust washers are bronze or babbitt.

What parts should I order when opening up this rear end? Any parts at the ends of the axles (felt washers?), and / or at the drive shaft-to-differential case?

Please let me know.

Thanks.freder

Hi,
I'm not an expert but it looks just like the rear end in my 24. I would hold off on buying parts until you have it apart and the parts cleaned. I wound up placing 2 or 3 orders for parts when I rebuilt mine because I missed small cracks and didn't know so,e of the names of the parts. Post pictures of what you find and there are people here who can talk you through almost anything.

Good idea to wait 'til opened up to order parts.

Thank you, James.

If the drain/fill plug is half way up the rear axle houses then it is 1919 or earlier. Late 1919 they dropped the fill plug lower than half.
