Trac-Lok questions, help and opinions.
So a buddy of mine gave me a trac-loc out of a 1986 mercury capri... It has 40K on it and was pampered most of it's life. It also came with the gears from the capri. My buddy thinks there 3.73's but i wanna check them to be sure. If they are 3.73's can i swap them into the bird without massive problems? I know on the trac-loc i have to bevel the gears or take my cir clips off and i am looking at just taking the clips off. I will be doing axle seals when i am doing the trac-loc or trac-loc and gears. I don't remember everything i had to do the last time i broke an axle and replaced it so I am hunting for info on it and it's been years since i have played with a rearend and the last one i played with was a 9 inch.
So i guess what i am asking here is for a daily driver is the trac-loc a good thing, Would the other gears if there 3.73's be a good idea, does the trac-loc help in the snow at all, Did i miss a writeup on doing the gear swap and track-loc install? Any comments advice and all is appreciated.
