Can you not run an older gear set with the corresponding bearings/races in the newer housing?

I thought I read the pinion spline count was different, and the bearing size, but if you used the correct bearing set you would be fine.

I've got both an older, complete 10.5 and a 2011+ so I guess I will find out soon enough.

Curious if you've had a chance to see if bearings from older 10.5 will work in newer housing? I like the 37 spline pinion but I'd rather go to steeper then 4.88s if possible. I already have a '12 with elocker, don't really want to source another older housing to swap too. Thanks

I have not had a chance to open them up yet, but I do have a master install kit for a 10.25, along with an 06' 10.5 housing and a 13' 10.5

I am hoping with a mis-mash of parts I can use the newer housing instead of drilling a hole for wiring for the e-locker.

Ok Thanks, I'll keep my eyes on this thread for updates.

I have the spe diesel bypass kit on my 2012. Allows the locker to stay engaged past 2#mph factory setting.

However, if you engage the locker with there relay bypass and leave the locker engaged after shut off.... It will drain two batteries dead with 24hrs.

Happened to me twice this summer before I figured that out on my tow rig.

See my above reply.

I left my locker engaged two separate weekends both times for longer then 24 hrs both times. Long enough to kill both my batteries each time.

That was back in August and in October. My locker still works, and have had no issues. Just got back from a 5000 mile trip pulling 15k behind. Michigan to Utah the southern route.

i bought the same kit and looked at it and then sold it as not worth the price and like you side it leaves the locker on. ive done my own set up that has its own switch and it takes power from the abs system and put it to the locker. so turns off the abs/traction control crap and turns my locker on. zero issues in over a year now and does not kill my battery plus like not having the traction control trying to stop the truck

I just turn off the traction control and stability manually.

I ordered their kit, didn't feel like returning it. I bought it during a sale along with tunes for my truck. So I paid a bit under retail for it. But I do wish I would have known it could still power up the locker after key off.

But after two separate events of the locker being supplied constant power long enough to draw two batteries dead. I'm glad it didn't "burn up" the locker.

Any updates on this?

Question about disengagement.

When turning power off to the E Locker, does it require axle rotation to disengage? Is it instant?

Thinking of using turning brakes and push buttons mounted to the brake handles to disengage the locker. Was told this would not work as most E Lockers require axle rotation to unlock.

Lower Gears for Factory Ford E-Locker

I am wondering if any here knows if the Ford Factory E-locker (BC3Z-4026-B) will work with 5.13 gears? I want to install one of these in the Sterling in my Jeep. Thanks

Ford must have dropped the price- there're 1/2 dozen places in that price range now. I was 5 seconds from pushing 'complete order', but I think I'll wait till Monday and ask the local dealers if they'll match the price. Save $100 shipping.

Iím going to call Monday too and see what my price is. I need to get a few parts anyways.

Bump from page 2, if you're ordering from Ford. The housing pass-through, and wire plug for it.

Can the sleeve be mounted in a 99-04 housing?

I was wondering that same, that answers that! I did catch a comment about the locker's magnetic field interfering with the rear VSS sensor, anyone have problems like that? I'd love to have one in my 10.25 but if the VSS won't work when the locker is energized, that kind of kills it for me.

Looking at that video it appears there is a pad cast in the housing for mounting the sleeve. I was in hopes of machining the 99-04 housing to use the sleeve, but now I think the sleeve is too long. It would stick thru too far and hit the diff.

Skip machining/drilling the housing, skip the fancy connector with the o-ring, cut a small groove into where the diff cover seals using a grinder and cutoff wheel. Run the e-locker wire there and RTV it in place when you seal up the diff cover.

or just use pass thru bulkheads on the diff cover to eliminate leakage.

This is what I was thinking about but haven't found a suitable bulkhead sleeve that has a connector on each end. This way you could unplug the outside connector, remove diff cover, unplug inside connector, set diff cover to the side.
