Mike Bender was looking for just the right part for a project he's working on, so on my last trip down to Tulsa I took along a pile of differentials for him to go through and maybe find what he needs. I just tossed nine or ten of them in the Suburban without looking closely at any of them. When we were unloading them yesterday, Mike noticed this one. At first I thought it might be Ford of pre-T vintage, but the way it's made suggests otherwise. Maybe somebody familiar with early cars can tell us what it is.
Does the 06 painted on the side tell us the year?
The ring gear being riveted suggests non-Ford to me.
Hi Steve. Its NRS Ford. They had a riveted ring gear.
Yes, agree with Andrew, it's for an NRS car.
Very good. My knowledge of the early cars is approximately nil.
Might be early T too.
Does this say "06"?
Steve, interested in selling or trading for it?
MY 09 no rivet rear axle assembly has the ring gear riveted on like that one. The pinion gear is also riveted to the drive shaft.
In the bottom picture, the right side of the case appears to still have the big fibre washer that goes between the axle gear and the case there.Steve,is it there,or is it my imagination?I know someone that needs one for a pattern.
