PML makes two covers for the Ford 7.5 inch (7½") ring gear differential. PML Part Number 7043 has a straight fin design and a round shape.
This rear end differential cover fits the Ford 7.5 ring gear. Some possible applications are:
- Bronco II, 1984 to 1990
- Ranger, 1983 to 2012 (the 4.0L engine Rangers usually have the larger 8.8 inch rear)
- Mustang, 1982 to 1986
- Aerostar, 1986 to 1997 and minivans
- Mazda B2300, 1994 and newer
- Mazda B3000, 1994 and newer
Always check your truck to verify differential and look for clearance. Configurations vary. This cover is larger than stock so make sure you have space for a larger cover.
This cover may also fit some minivans, Crown Vics, Grand Marquis cars, and Thunderbirds. The Ford 7.5 stock cover is about 9.75 inches vertically. Some models may have the larger Ford 8.8 differential (PML part numbers 7064 and 9519), which is more rectangular in shape and longer (vertically). Please check carefully which differential your vehicle has and if you have clearance.
Nigel installed this PML differential cover on his 2001 Ranger XLT truck.
He wanted a custom look so he purchased the cast finish part and painted it burnt copper (first picture), then sanded the fins (second picture), clear coated and then finally installed the cover (last picture). The color matches his engine valve cover.

1985 Mustang GT
Glenn installed this PML cover for Ford 7.5 differentials on his 1985 Mustang GT 5.0 5 Speed. Before installing, he decided to try a clear coat "paint" on the cover to keep it looking nice and easier to clean.
Optional Machining for Temperature Sending Unit
On the inside of this cover (see image) there is an oval pad, which provides a thick area in the front face of the casting that can be drilled and tapped for a temperature sending unit.
This is an option and machining charges apply. Verify your aftermarket sending unit thread specifications before selecting this in the shopping cart.
