Default '36 Ford rearend - # of splines?

I want to use one of the Speedway kits to adapt the stock rearend in my 36 to an open driveshaft. They have one for a 6 spline and one for a 10 spline...which would the 36 use? Thanks!

If I am reading your question correctly, I believe you are asking for the pinion gear spline count for a stock '36 (coupe??) rear, and that would be 10 splines as swanwaco32 mentioned in his post......IF the rear in your car is actually stock, never been changed.

Now on your last post you posted a lot of information, apparently copied from Mac Van Pelts website. This information looks to me to be for reproduction gear sets, probably made in Italy, that he is selling as new replacement gear sets. These gear sets available for '35 -'48 vehicles with original banjo style rears, are reproduced with 6 spline gears. No one to my knowledge is making '35-'48 reproduction banjo style rear gears with 10 spline pinions.
If these repro gears are what you plan to use, then your only choice would be to use a set of these gears with a 6 spline pinion and buy the kit for an open drive that would be necessary for a 6 spline pinion.
If you are planning to use a stock used set of gears, either what's in your car now, or maybe purchase another used set of gears in the preferred ratio, then depending on what that pinion spline count is, will dictate which spline count kit you will need to buy from Speedway.
Hopefully, this is clearer than mud .

That's what I'm asking, and I didn't mean to sound like I was questioning swanwaco32's answer at all , I just read the other info and wondered...now it's clearer. The rear end in my coupe is the stock 36 that came in it from the factory, never changed, and I want to keep it complete with the gears in it. Thatnks very much for the info.

I would recommend you buy the open drive kit from "Hot Rod Works" in Idaho.
Excellent quality & fit

I second Kanuna on Hot Rod Works, they sell quality parts. Give them a call. And on the spline count, if I was doing this job I would remove the torque tube and count them. You can get your kit within a very short time and that way you know what you actually have!
