Going through some nos diff. case spiders I came across this odd one looks to have the T/W mark, pronounced Ford script also letter C in raised letter, the odd thing is the stubs at the end which are machined are only 1/2" long, the regular spider stubs measure 3/4"? please see photo's
thank you, Bob
Robert, the spider was probably modified for use in a Ruckstell.
Did someone mention spiders...
will that work in your rear end? better use lots of 600 w
the spider I have looks to have been machine this way not cut down
Bob: I don't know what Ruckstell did, but back when I got started, there were still a lot of NOS spiders around, and I had to grind them down to fit. It is possible Ruckstell had a machine that modified the spiders for their kits. I'm sure Glen Chaffin would know.
Dennis! How could you? Ish da! I hate spiders! ('cept diffy pideys).
Eww! I poop my pants when I have to kill one that's the size of a silver dollar. Yuck.
Squish and spray!
Sorry. I wish I knew anything about the differences in the diffy spiders.
Ruckstell did not supply a modified spider. The original Ruckstell instructions say to grind off the ends of the Ford spider to fit the Ruckstell differential assembly.
Early differential spiders used bronze bushings, that's the reason for the smaller diameter ends.
same diameter on both these spiders, I talk to Glen Chaffin last night, it is for Ruckstell, thank you forum, Bob
Real or fake I would not get near those things Dennis. Holly smoke.
