"Within the 144 pages of this softcover book is everything you need to know about rebuilding Ford's 8.8 and 9-inch differentials. In fact, the information is so well presented with understandable, concise writing backed by hundreds of clear, detailed photographs, that you'll be able to rebuild most other differentials too, as they are all basically the same by design. Here the author guides you through each and every step of the rebuilding process, details the tools needed, explains how and why each part works, and shows you how to set the pinion angle and other critical dimensions." -Hemmings Classic Car, September 2013 (Hemmings Classic Car 2013-07-12)
"It can't make you an expert, it can't even stop you getting things wrong, but it can definitely stop you from falling into the elephant traps that await the novice, and help you decide whether you should attempt the job yourself or just call the speed shop.... definitely recommended." -American Car Magazine, November 2013 (American Car Magazine 2013-10-14)
"... an essential reference on the subject." -tkc magazine, January/February 2014 (tkc magazine 2013-12-19)
From the Inside Flap
The Ford 8.8- and 9-inch rear differentials are two of the most popular and best performing differentials on the market. While the 8.8-inch differential is commonly used in late-model Mustangs, the 9-inch is the most popular and arguably the most dominant high-performance differential for muscle cars, hot rods, custom vehicles and race cars. Built from 1957-1986, the 9-inch Ford differential is used in a huge range of high-performance Ford and non-Ford vehicles because of its rugged construction, easy-to-setup design, and large aftermarket support. The 9-inch differential effectively transmits power to the ground for many classic Fords and hot rods of all types, but is the choice of many GM muscle car owners and racers as well. These differentials have been extensively used and proven their mettle in racing and high-performance applications.
The Ford 8.8- and 9-inch need to be rebuilt after extensive use and need a variety of different ratios for top performance and special applications. This Workbench book provides detailed step-by-step photos and information for rebuilding the differentials with the best equipment and installing the gear sets and converting to posi-traction for a variety of applications. It shows how to disassemble the rear end, identify worn ring and pinion gears and other damage or wear, and proceeds to show step-by-step rebuilding of the differential. It also explains how to select the right differential hardware, bearings, seals, and other parts, as well as how to set ring and pinion backlash, so the rear end operates at peak efficiency.
Aftermarket 9-inch performance differentials from manufacturers, such as Currie, Moser and Strange, will be reviewed and the reader will learn how to rebuild and set-up these high-performance aftermarket differentials. In addition, the book provides a comprehensive 9-inch identification chart to ensure readers properly identify the model and specifics of the differential.
