Re: 3.54 Cwp

Langlia...I looked at IWE website and it looks like they are the experts. I had previously set mine up (myself) with new ring gear bearings....betting I could get by using the existing pinion bearings. Unfortunately, the pinion bearings were bad too. I was a little intimidated pressing on and off th...

Re: 3.54 Cwp

Brett, I have mentioned before, I have the overdrive tranny behind a 2.3 motor, 4.1 rear, 13" tires and it is still revving too high for my likes...even on the 2 lane back roads. You are quite experienced in these matters....but if it helps.....I went from the 100E axle (I think 4.4) to the 1015E ax...

Re: 3.54 Cwp

Brett, took my diff with new bearings, crush sleeve, and seal to a local shop. They assembled it for $125 USD. Langlia, If you contact IWE, let us know price and availability of the ring and pinion. It would be interesting to know the labor price, but I can have the labor done locally again. If he h...

mmmm. Retroford's 3.54 is about $310...add some shipping to that and it might be about the same as the ebay price.... and we don't know where the ebay parts were made. Langlia...what engine do you have? tire size? O.D.? I have the 2.3 with OD and 13" tires....with O.D., the donor car the 2.3 came ou...

they are similar in shape to the flathead v8...which the head was taller than a stock bolt. I ran a chevy disc in a flathead v8 which barely hit the bolt head, so I replaced them with ARP flywheel bolts ...which had shorter head height. Someone on the site must have another bolt for you, but if not,...

hey BigFred....I have 175's on my 300E. I dont know if I have the 5.2 or 5.6 rims as they came off of other models. The tire just does clear the strut, and the rim is literally "riding on the sidewall"....from so much sidewall bulge. There is no issue with fender clearance. With that said, I will be...

Langlia...your right...T5s are more plentiful. and they are bigger too. But if the T9 is easier to bolt in, then that might would be a better choice. I got my T9 from Merkur Parts Midwest. They show a couple on their website. Mine is behind a 2.3 liter so I am not sure about mating it to a Kent if t...
