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.

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.

Bob:

Early differential spiders used bronze bushings, that's the reason for the smaller diameter ends.
