  1. You'll need the installation kit (showed it on the right hand side as suggested too!) Also, it is not just drop in and go, there are procedures you need to go through to have proper gear lash and setting pinion depth as well as torque. A few tools you'll need are an inch pound torque wrench (for the pinion torque) and to get there you have to really torque down the nut. I used a breaker bar and cheater pipe, it needed to be tightened to around 200ft lbs so that when you use the inch torque wrench it has a certain amount of "friction" to it

     

    I would have a qualified mechanic do the instalation, :D So I would also need this? http://www.cjponyparts.com/ford-racing-differential-trac-lok-limited-slip-28-spline-9/p/RPM3K/

     

    Is there there another route to go, or is this the best way for me to get Traction lok on my vert?

     

    Thanks for your help

  2. I hope I'm not duplicating this thread. Saw a couple close thread, but none exactly asking the same question. So I guess I ask. :D

     

    I have a 1973 9 code 3.25:1 which is open, and I was wondering if it would simply be a switch to a Ford Racing Differential Trac-Lok Limited Slip 28-Spline 9" unit to add traction lok?

     

    And if it is just the instalation of this part http://www.cjponyparts.com/ford-racing-differential-trac-lok-limited-slip-28-spline-9/p/M4204F28A/ what else is needed to be done?

     

    Or is there a better way to do this?

     

    Thanks

  3. Great looking car and a Q. I have 72 Q and like yours they did not get Traction Loc? Decor Group is great option on vert. I will probably make the Charlotte Hornets Nest show but not to Florida this year too much going on.

    Yes, I am running the 3.25:1 rear axel (9 code) which had traction lock, also competition suspension.

    Beautiful car! I would love to have a convertible, especially a Q code car. Nice find! As David mentioned above, axle code 9 is for a conventional 3.25 ratio (open). Traction Lok units would have code R for the axle code. Not sure why they would not pair a Traction Lok unit with the Q code but it was an extra cost option ($42.64) in '73

     

    Guess I read that incorrect, bummer, but still love it. :D

  4. Hi David,

     

    and welcome from Brisbane, Australia. Beautiful Vert you have there. I'm very jealous as white is my favorite color, especially triple white. Dressing it up with all the mat black war paint and goodies to the Mach 1 theme, is a look i would go for in a big way myself. In your case, you probably would want to keep the car original i would imagine.

     

    Greg.:)

     

    Thanks for the kind words, and yes I have to keep her original as posible. But I also love the black accent stripes, spoilers and NASA hoods, maybe my next mustang. ::thumb::

  6. Hello from Phoenix! That's a clean looking convertible. Are the seats original?

     

    My interior is the same only dirty and marked up from years of use. :)

     

    I am glad you found us.

     

    100% original, only thing on her that isn't would be the aftermarket cassette deck. I'm working on getting the correct Philco am/fm radio, but can't find one in good enough condition, that will match interior condition.
