in this pic you'll see how much the axle shaft goes inside before it reaches the bearing retainer. more axle shaft inside, means less axle tube outside. for an even length axle shaft for both sides.

The view of the third member is upside down.

Just so you are aware you can have a 9" built with the pinion centered. Currie did mine for me, and all cuz I just can't stand looking at the driveshaft shooting off to one side. I guess I'm symmetrical like that. That and I wanted 31 spline axles too. Oh and I forgot I needed to change the wheel pattern to 5 X 4.5.

Yep, Currie is well known for making 9" rears. Moser makes them too.

the pinion angle at 2-3 degrees on this 9" picture...and my u-joint sould live thru it...theroretically...
Click the image to open in full size.

...'cause the one I settin' up for my '56 looks kinda just like it outa a '70 effie...am i on the same page???......

I can't tell from the picture, but if the left and right side of the rear axle are different lengths from the axle flanges to the pinion, that's cool as long as you position the engine with the crankshaft centerline parallel to the frame. Do not offset the engine in the frame to match the pinion offset. (you can offset the engine side to side in the frame if needed for starter or steering box clearance, just don't offset it an equal amount to the pinion offset) If you mount the engine with a downwards tilt to the tranny end when viewed from the side (normally this will be the case when matching the factory orientation of the carb flange on the intake being set level with the ground), then the rear axle rotation (pinion angle) should match that angle.
I will be adding a diagram to this post for clarification shortly, stay tuned!

Any ID numbers on the carrier (pumpkin) like C2AW, C6AW, C7AW?

Just to let you know, there were TWO different 9" rear ends used in 1968/72 F100's.

One has a 9" ring gear with 28 splined axles, one has a 9 3/8" ring gear with 31 splined axles.

The only parts that interchange between the 9" and the 9 3/8" are the 2 pinion bearings and one race.

Everything else is different including the seals.
