I'm refurbing the 9" going into my Maverick. I know diddely about 9" Ford Rears (only that they're hell stout).

I came across a fitting on the top of the axle housing. I assume it is a vent?

What is to vent to? There are two outlets, one steel and one rubber hose.

My Q: What am i supposed to do with this? Get a breather for it and go? Other?

Thanks,

Rick
p.s. Can one attach an image from the C:/Drive to a post?

There should be a rubber line just above the housing in your car. It attaches to it.

This is '70 Maverick that's been off the street for sometime. If the 'rubber line' WAS there, it isn't anymore.

What would the line have run to?

There are two lines hanging down. One of course is the rubber line to the rear brake lines, the other is the axle vent tube. It runs from a fitting on the axle tube on the driver's side to a fitting in the frame/subframe.
