Only one pattern for the pumpkin.

The axle ends have two for the backing drum plates.

There may be least one other for disk brakes. I've "heard" that the late Lincoln and truck disc brakes are different but have no personal knowledge about them.

Does anyone use the FEL-PRO 9" gasket with the steel core? Just wondering because I designed it in 1992 to be reusable but you still need the copper washers or it will leak gear oil at studs.

After too many....

January 7 2018, 2:12 PM 

hours spent under a nine-inch rear end with a screwdriver and a small hammer removing those damn copper washers, I bought an F-100 truck with some sort of added on---less than 3.00---gear and bought a 4.11 pig at one of the Milan swap meets. It had the washers, but no gasket---just RTV---and when I put the new pig back in I just used an extra bit of the RTV around the base of each stud. It never leaked! No more copper washers for me, ever! happy.gif

Deffinitly agree with RTV on studs

I have replaced the carrier twice and used RFV in the studs and haven't leakded a drop of oil on either one.
