In a 79 Pinto rear end the ring gear is on a
casing that houses the spider. Does this casing
come apart to get to the spider gears, if so, is there a trick to it. I've taken the bolts out from around the ring gear, which I assumed
meant the casing should come apart, but it doesn't seem to budge. Thanks

The casing does split but it is a job. It will take you a lot of tapping and cussing but it will seperate. I suggest a good penetrating lube like pb blaster to get it lubed up and try a thin screw driver lightly tapped to get it started.
