Ford 9" in 53 Ford

Can anyone give me the drum to drum measurement on their 53 truck? I have a ford 9" out of a 70 Mustang and wanted to know if I had to shorten it to put in my 53???

It is narrower than the stock diff for the truck.

Really? The guy I bought the truck off said he thought it was going to be needed to be cut down. So can I run it?

I believe it is 59 1/4 wide compared to F100's 61 1/4. Might have to use to use reversed wheels to move away from bed sides.

It will fit. You need to redo spring perches. Bolt pattern is different so you need different wheels. It will allow a deeper dish wheel though.
