Installation on Ford Tow Vehicle
This PML differential cover was installed on a Ford dynamometer test trailer axle. The test trailer is a mid-90s towing dynamometer. Ford uses it to simulate grades on a level surface. They tow this trailer behind a vehicle and can simulate a loaded trailer climbing any grade in the world. Our thanks to Jim for the pictures and for choosing a PML rear differential cover to cool down this test rig.
