Drain, Fill, Level Check and Optional Temperature Sensor Machining
This PML cover includes a drain on the bottom of the cover and fill holes on the side and the top
Some Ford differentials have a factory fill location on the driveshaft side of the third member. Newer vehicles do not and can use the fill hole on the differential cover. For a temperature sending unit, PML can machine the boss under the level check. There is a machining charge and this option needs to be ordered over the phone.
There is a boss (thick area on the casting) below the fill hole on the side that can be drilled and tapped for a temperature sending unit. This is optional and if you want PML to machine the boss with a 1/8 NPT hole, there is a $45 charge.
In the Package
PML includes new mounting bolts, washers, fill plugs, and a magnetic drain plug and copper sealing washer with the cover. Click on image to view larger.
This rear end differential cover fits many Ford trucks and SUVs. Vehicle configurations vary so check yours carefully. Some common applications are:
Some models do not have clearance for a larger differential cover. Always check if you have clearance before ordering.
Some models may have the smaller Ford 7.5 differential, which is more rounder in shape and shorter (vertically). Other models have have the larger For 9.75 differential, which has a different shape and has 12 bolts. The Ford 8.8 stock cover is about 11 inches vertically and the 7.5 inch is about 9.75 inches vertically.
Check out our Ford 7.5 diff covers for pictures and more information if you have the smaller differential.
Check out our Ford 9.75 diff covers for pictures and more information if you have the larger differential.
This Ford differential cover is designed for non-IRS, REAR differential on Ford vehicles. Some 4WD F150 trucks have the 8.8 ring gear differential in the front but on the trucks we have seen there is not enough room for this cover. For vehicles with IRS, the linkage bolts on to the cover and PML differential covers are not compatible.
Note to Expedition owners: a larger cover may be too deep to clear the track bar that runs behind the differential cover. Using the dimensions, please check your vehicle for clearance before purchasing.
Inside of Cover
On the inside, the cover is rounded, following the profile of the ring gear area in the stock cover.
