welded rear

I have a late 1970's rear Ford 9" axle, big bearing 31 spline. I've noticed its a 2 (3?) spider gear carrier not a 4 and I want to weld the rear end up. Comming from zuks (4 spider gear rears) Im no stranger to the lincoln locker setup (welding the teeth of the spider gear up in a cross pattern and grinding it smooth), What works better? Lincoln locked or just welded together and to the carrier? Anyone know where there's a good writeup of one?

Re: welded rear

ok well does anyone at least know how to split the carrier open? I can see the press pins and caps over them but should I just pry it open?

Re: welded rear

The guy that did my 9" used a case splitter. I think there's 4 holes for it. I'm not sure if you can pry it or not. Call a local diff shop and ask how much it would run you just to split the case out to drop the diff. I don't imagine it could cost that much.

Re: welded rear

Im thinking if I use a flat head screw driver and rotate the diff while prying I can safely get'er open. I just wanted to check and make sure Im not going to ruin anything in specific..
