Truck ID #'s Needed

Anyone have access to 80's data? I need a rear end ID code C9, and
trans code K. Vehicle in question is a '86 f-truck 4x4 with carbed 460.
I need some idea as to resale value of front and rear axles (Dana),
transfer case, gas tanks with inside pumps, etc. 88 thousand original
miles. Engine has had all the gaskets resealed. Runs good, trans is
toast. Anyone need parts?

Rear axle turned out to be the big Ford 10.25-inch, ratio still
unknown for now. Truck is actually an '85. I thought, being an '86 with
electric pumps, that the original engine was an EFI. It appears that
this was a carb truck (found sticker under hood), so the pumps must be
low pressure. I was wondering how the carb didn't blow up without a
regulator. Also, the EFI motors, from what I was told locally, have
valve cover hold-down bolts in the middle of the covers instead of
around the rail, and cannot accept a regular carb intake.

The transfer case is an aluminum New Process 208. Trans is a C6,
which threw me at first glance because of the lowered section in the
center of the pan.

Heavy duty beast, I'd say. Will have it in hand next week.

Here's an axle ID page for your reference:

CJ, I can check that axle code for a ratio tomorrow.

The mid-80s carb'd 460s did often use a low-pressure electric pump. Not
sure what the reasoning was behind that one. EFI didn't start until 1988
model year on the 460s I believe.

If you need any specific info I have a 86 F250 sitting out back
waiting to finish the 460 and reinstall it. I also have a 85 F350 4sp I
use all the time for even heaver stuff. KB (the commom axle ratio would
prob. be a 3.50 on that unit.)

Here's what I came up with from the chart in the Ford parts catalogue that
decodes the door label axle codes:

1985 and up, 3.55 ratio, limited slip, 6250 lb. capacity

The HF26 in the VIN indicates an F-250 4WD, over 8500 GVW. The front axle
would probably be a Dana 50, I believe. This is still a Twin-I-Beam design
I'm assuming. The F-350 usually got a monobeam axle with leaf springs.
What's it worth? Not a clue ... LOL
