What is my gearbox ratio?
Posted 29 June 2004 - 04:34 PM
I have a ea81T engine but I don't think the gearbox is standard. The gearbox is 5 speed with 2wd, 4wd hi and 4wd low. Currently I have a 3.9:1 diff on it but are not sure if it is the right diff?
Would the car be drivable with the wrong diff?
How would I test the gearbox ratio?

you describe a dual range lever. there were part time dual range (23 spline) and full time dual range (RX)
but if its in an ea81 body, which used 23 solined axles, mos likely you have a part time 4wd dual range from a non turbo, which will have a 3.9 gear
go find soem sand or loose gravel, engece 4wd and see if she binds up or not

Unless the trans has been swaped ?

Fox and Shadow, the 85 and 86 RXs had the part time 4WD trannies and 3.70 ratio, plus 25 spline stub axles, actually the Fulltime 4WD trannies didn't show up until the 87 1/2 model.
