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:
