1964 Mustang Differentials

Differentials

A 1964 Mustang differential is a key component that makes up the drivetrain. The basic use of a differential is to transfer the rotational motion of the propeller shaft to the rear wheels via a gear set. A differential can also rotate each wheel at different speeds, which is why a Mustang can change direction without skidding. The propeller shaft provides the input power from the engine. The rotational motion is transferred to a pinion which moves a ring gear. Two side gears then transfer the power to either wheel via a half shaft. When the car is moving in a straight line, both side gears rotate in unison. When the car is turning, the wheel on the inside rotates faster than the one on the outside—all thanks to the differential. This is how a differential works. CJ Pony Parts offers 1964 Mustang differentials at amazingly low prices.

Differentials From Brands You Trust

Our parts inventory consists of branded parts from some of the best manufacturers in the business. If you’re a racing enthusiast, CJ Pony Parts offers differential upgrades just for you. Other parts associated with Mustang differentials, like wheel bearings, half shafts, axle kits and clutch packs, are also available in our online store. Be sure to order the Mustang differential you need:

• Open differential. An open type is the most basic form of differential. It allows the one wheel to spin at a different rate relative to the other. This usually happens when the car is turning.
• Torsen differential. A Torsen differential does not use clutches. Instead, it uses the change in torque due to wheel slip to lock the gears into position. A torque bias ratio determines when the gears lock.
• Viscous coupling. In this type of differential, a viscous fluid detects wheel slip and transmits torque.
• Limited-slip differential (LSD). A limited-slip differential uses a spring mechanism and clutches to limit the torque transferred to the wheel that has the least traction. In this way, an LSD can prevent wheel spin and loss of power associated with it.

So now you know why a differential is important for a Mustang and the different types that are available in the market.
