Extra info on 9.75” and Aluminum IRS 8.8

Two DVD set which is nearly three Hours Long, shows Hands On overhaul instructions of the Ford 8.8 Rear End. Introduced about 1980, this poplar axle was used in light truck, vans, Crown Vic’s, big Merc’s, V8 Mustangs since 86, many other rear axle drive Fords and is still used today. This updated and copyrighted video includes; tool overview, axle disassembly, inspection, bearing replacement, use of the Ford pinion depth tool, setting backlash and tooth pattern, final assembly, repair tips and includes Aluminum IRS rebuilding procedures. These rears are used in the Mark 8, 99+ model Cobra and late Explorer. Scenes show how to use a housing spreader, finding carrier bearing shim size by using Ford’s dummy bearing tool set and I even threw in a segment on replacing the pinion crush sleeve with a solid spacer. Also see chapters on Traction-Lok Overhaul and 7.5“ rear end comparison (this video can be used for repairing the 7.5” rear end). Newly added video chapter on the 9.75” rear end found in 97 and later F150’s and Expeditions. Segments include repair similarities to the 8.8” as well as the very different rebuild procedure needed for the 9.75” traction-lok carrier. There are six scene segments on each of the two DVD disc’s to quickly view or review information. I’ve added helpful tips, alternative methods for setting pinion depth and clutch pack clearance.

Bonus Info Package: The package comes with a detailed tool list, spec sheet, FAQ’s, Ford service part numbers, tooth pattern and backlash adjustment charts and a measured drawing for making an adapter needed for use with a housing spreader.
