    Does anyone know what the bolt pattern of a Ford 9 Inch rearend is???

    I'd like to make my own rear end in welding class and I think the one super critical area is gonna be getting the bolt pattern correct. . .I need the bolt pattern so that I can make a pattern in AutoCAD and get the stud plate laser cut so that I can fab a housing, etc.

    Thanks!

    I email it to you this morning atomicjoe. I did not creat this file so i can not verify the accuracy of the hole pattern, but its something to start with.

    If you have the ability to plot a full scale of the pattern you use, you may want to compare it to the gasket or the rear end gear set you plan to use just to be safe. I have also seen several variations of the notch for assembling the gear set so check that out too. I will post some dimensional drawings here for ya later. Also check trails less traved, they have a dxf there too.
