Ford 9in Housing with Ends no Mounts

This housing is fitted with fill and drain plugs to facilitate faster fluid changes, it is tubed with mild steel tubing, and choice of housing ends. Larger tubing is stronger, but the intended mounts may dictate tube diameter. Since the builder will be installing their own mounts, extreme care must be taken during the welding process as housing end alignment can be compromised.

The Housing Centers

Strange’s 9 inch center is constructed from .141” mild steel with a heavy-duty .282” faceplate. Tube insertion locations are slotted to allow complete and secure welding of the tubes to the housing. Internal plates gusset the housing and provide internal support to the ends of the tubes. The cover is designed to provide the clearance necessary for cases with heavy-duty main caps and also allow the use of 9 1/2” ring and pinion gear sets.

You can choose between 3” or 3 1/4” mild steel tubing in a .250” wall. The tubing is installed deep into the housing until fully engaged into the internal gusset near the faceplate. Using an alignment jig, the tubing is welded 360 degrees to the outside of the housing, along the housing slots, as well as to the internal gusset. Mounts are to be attached to the jig and welded to the tubes. Lastly, the housing ends are welded after all other welding is complete to ensure perfect alignment with the center section.

A Welding Jig May Be Required

A Ford 9in housing without mounts is only for the builder that will be installing their own mounts. Care must be taken to avoid warping the tubes causing housing end misalignment. A welding jig should be used to verify housing end alignment after all other welding has been completed.
