View Full Version : rear end housing swap

02-16-2005, 01:13 AM
I recently found a rear end from a 93 T-bird w/ 3:27 gears to swap with my 94 2:73. I'm kind of confused on if it will truely work. The case has 2 wires coming from each side. I guess that's for the ABS sensors. I noticed on my stock case has a wire coming from the top right side. Looks like it goes in between the main part of the casing & the rear cover. The one I bought does not have this wire. Here's what it has on the metal tag of the 3:27 rear...

S 5 11 B
3L27 88 3D27

Can anyone help out?

It looks like you found a centersection with 3.27's and a T-Loc. Those wires can simply be unbolted from that centersection. Those were used for ABS. The "wire" on your centersection sounds like the vent tube. Just remove the vent tube from your centersection and install it on the new centersection before you put it in the car.

leaving it off will nullify the abs.
