I was looking at the artices to get an idea of what my cars might have for gears but I dont know what the 117/116 means. Both are 62’s one is a f-85 coupe with 15″ wheels and a 3 speed manual, the other is a deluxe(i believe) wagon. Are there axle codes so I can find out without opening them up?
I found the axle codes in the 63 Assembly manual. There is a stamped code on the rear cover edge, passenger side, at the 3 o’clock position. Mine is C-201. The C means 3.36, the 201 is the Julian date code (day number of the year). The only other codes are A for 3.08, B for 3.23. Posi rears would have a X in a circle before the codes. Hope this helps.
