1967 Differential Identification
For my project, I'm at a point where I'm just trying to maintain steady progress. I havent been able to dedicate a lot of man hours thus far, but I'm trying yo arrange things so that I can decompose the overall project into achievable chunks.
One of the chunks I'm trying to tackle at the moment is to identify the differential that is on my car. The previous owner said that it is a 9", but what would I need to take photos of in order to confirm? I was under the car on Sunday taking a few photos, but I only thought to take photos of the housing and the external casting numbers. The input shaft has been covered with plastic and I didn't think to pull it off and takr photos. I also didn't take the time to take any measurements.
I'm having trouble getting my photo of the casting numbers to compress well enough for upload, but here is what I can do to describe it.
Looking from the front into the input shaft, on the left (passenger) side at around 10 o'clock on the dial is a casting. there is a single character cast on its own line, but i can't quite make out whether it is a V or an upside down A. It looks mote like an upside down A to me.
Beneath it the casting appears to be
V-9*OV where "*" looks like it is a backwards 5.
Beneath that line is another one that reads what looks like
Is this enough information to narrow anything down at all?
What would I need to check to definitively identify my diff?
Thanks for any help you can give me.
