Nope Bagmaster, that would just make his problem even worse than it is. The 4.25 means the engine has to turn 4.25 times faster than the axle for a given wheel rpm.

A larger tire would reduce the effective axle ratio closer to the desired engine rpm for a given road speed. But as he already said, the required tire size would be monstrous.

correct. 30" tall tires would give me a ground speed of 53 mph at 2100 rpm i could live with that but even at 30 in's the tries are too tall. i guess i'll just start over with another rear end i want have to scrap what i made just rewld up everything to the new rear end. anybody got a alfa ring gear laying around

just do it and ask questions later. if you never start you\'ll never finish.

If you use an S-10 rear end make sure it's the one from a v-6 4.3 because the ratio will be 3.73. If you use the 4cyl S-10 the ratio will be 4.10 and I think thatis what you are trying to avoid. Even the 2.8 v-6 will probably be geareds to low for you.

When it\'s over your head it\'s under GOD\'S feet.

i'm looking for a mustang 4 lug now as i have already purchased the wheels that happen to be 4 lug. still trying to figure out how i can use what i have. transmisson guy told me to use and old 3 speed and turn it around put it in between the motor and rear end and put it in second gear he said that would make everything ok? may give it a shot i can pick one of them up for about 30 bucks.

just do it and ask questions later. if you never start you\'ll never finish.

That would give you the option of a really low gear if you decide to climb some heavy hills with a trailer behind you

flip it into low gear, and you have instant over-drive..

or filp it up into third and eat the desert up. may give it a shot. just have to make it a little shorter than stock. take the tail shaft off and saw the input shaft back some. it's worth a try. here goes.

just do it and ask questions later. if you never start you\'ll never finish.
