Which bearing are you talking about? Axle bearings? Pinion bearing? Carrier bearings?

I'm pretty sure that is just a press on bearing. It is in an 8 inch.

There its an axle seal but it is not necessary to replace if it is not leaking. If it is an axle bearing, unlike late models where you have to remove the cover, pin and clips, you can just unbolt the axle and remove it.

In the chilton book it shows you have to replace the gaskets cause they get torn, is that true. Thanks for all the help, Dom

If you are careful removing the axle, you should not damage the seal. Why do you know it need an axle bearing? Does it roar? Dies the roar change when you shift the load?

We are pretty positive. At we thought it was the brakes, so we dug in and found the brakes were fine so we rotated to axle and it sounded like a bad bearing but we didn't pull the axle yet because we figured there was no point until we get the parts together and find someone to press it on.

You can google 65 mustang 9" housing. Should run about $300 or so.
