Re: Ring & pinion

Just removed the gear case from my car. It had a 24 marked on it. I counted 24 teeth on gear. That must be the correct gear for a 455 ring and pinion that is in the diff. Your thoughts?

Ring & pinion

What is the best place to get a 3.25 -1 ring & pinion for my 38 Ford. I have a 4.55 -1 which is way to slow for me. I will also trade or buy outright. Thanks
