I have a 9in but dont know the year. My housing is leaking by where you put the axle in. I pulled the seal and dont have a part number. The part stores cant find it either. Which I think is b.s So anything at this point in time will help. Thanks

Well, no doubt you're dealing with the "year-make-model" book readers, who have no capacity to do anything but read the screen. Really, there's only a few possibilities, even if the rear in your car is from a different year. Slap a ruler on it, and call somebody who will actually pull parts and measure them, like Glazier Nolan.

This thing had no part number on it at all. It was bright green so it would have been easy to read a number off. That link did not have what I was looking for I read that one a few times. What is the name of the seal? Just a tube seal or would it be some other name. Thanks for the help

Axle seal.

I wasn't kidding about Glazier Nolan, they'll actually pull parts and measure them for you. It could be in the mail this time tomorrow, and your problems would be over.

IMO Currie is the best place to get anything you need for the Ford 9 inch. They sell all the parts and they know their stuff. Call them. Oh, and their prices are CHEAP!

Go to the local parts store and ask for a "set 20 timken bearing." That's a popular 9in bearing/seal/collar combo.It's the "Torino bearing." See if that bad boy looks like what you have.

It's because they call them a "wheel seal" not an axle seal. Go into any of the chain parts stores and ask for a wheel seal and they should be able to help you out.

It's my understanding that 8 and small bearing 9 inchers w/28 spline axles use the same seal. Start with a 67 289 powered car and you will get the small seal.

70 torino with a 429 should get you a big bearing seal.

good luck

what size axle tubes do you have? i have a custom currie 9" with 3" axle tubes and a small bearing. i use the stock 28 spline axles and its a "67 mustang with a 390" axle (wheel) seal. this is the way you have to describe stuff to the parts guys.
