I bought a '69 Mustang this winter and found out today that it has the original 351W motor in it, and most likely the original FMX transmission, then I got curious and wanted to see if the rear axle is the original one to my '69 Mustang. I can´t seem to find anywhere how to ID the small aluminum axle tag. Maybe someone can help me.

The Tag reads...

WES-T1 8LC
2.75 9 951A

I've found out that WES-T1 is a 9" axle with a 2.75 gear ratio, but I have no idea what "8LC" "9" and "951A" stand for...?

Can anyone please help!

The "8LC" is the date code meaning 8= Year 1968, L=Month December, C=Week 3rd week. All meaning the 3rd week of december, 1968.

Cant really help you with the 951A number. Ford changed coding around over the years and I dont have info telling what that represents. The fact no L is present in that group does mean it NOT a traction lock.

Awesome.. this is the original 9" axle according to the date! According to the Marti Repost the car originally had 2.75 gear ratio and was scheduled to be built on Dec 27th 1968 and was actually built on the 30th of Dec.

Thanks! :bigthumbsup
