9 inch Third Member Trac-Lok Pumpkin
#1
Hello,

Right before I left work yesterday, I checked the auto parts of Craigs List and WOW, there was a Ford 9 inch Posi-traction third member pumpkin for sale. It was removed from a 1973 Ford Mach 1 Mustang equipped with a 351C engine. The Mach 1 had 67K miles when it was removed. I am not crazy about the Ratio 2.75. One can always install a better gear. I paid $350.00 buck-roos for it. I believe that it was a good price for it considering how much a traction lock goes for these days! This will be replacing the 8 inch rear end currently residing in my 1973 coupe.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!
