Re: Ford 9 Inch ring and pinion

Sounds like you need to find out what is in the lower end of your engine. If it would hold up to the rpm,...I'd stretch it out to at least 7k or so. I sti;; think you'll end up putting your old gears back in the long run. Need to revisit this question after you find out what is in the engine,...Car...

Re: Ford 9 Inch ring and pinion

I was planning on shifting at 6500 but with the RPM going up so fast pretty sure I shifted early.

When I shift frm first to second the RPMs didnt drop. So I was going right to Thirds.

Re: Ford 9 Inch ring and pinion

Hmmm,...well,...after thinking about this a bit more. You are running a 3 spd tranny as opposed to the glide. I'm not used to that myself as no one I know or have help uses a 3 spd tranny. Launch gear will be lower I guess. You are crossing the stripe at 6300 in the 1/8th or the 1/4? How much 1/4 d...

Re: Ford 9 Inch ring and pinion

imo,...you are not going to be happy with that gear. Like some one else in here has said in a lil' nicer way,.... you're basically idling across the line. You're running 14x32 tires??? I just think you are going to regret spending this money. :pissed: What does the lower end of your engine consist ...

Re: Ford 9 Inch ring and pinion

Got a new 400 trans with a brake in it, new externally balanced flywheel, and changing the ring and pinion.

What ones?

Re: Switching from a Turbo 350 to a 400?

I would go to a glide as well. If I break another trans, then I will be switching over to a glide. But then again, I have already broke another bell housing due to having an internal balanced flywheel and having an external balanced motor. Gonna fix it one more time and then its off to a glide.
