I got a set of 39/11 (3.55:1) gear/pinion for a 7.25" for $60 brand new! (NOS?) Actually $100 mailed to Canada.
I guess these are not popular parts ha ha
It occurred to me old Blue never goes much above 2,000 rpm and is pretty much timid as a kitten, despite loud headers etc.
Anyway since I have 2.26:1 right now, I guess I need to get a larger carrier case due to "carrier break".https://www.ringpinion.com/TechnicalHelp/contentframe.aspx?filepath=%7e%2fcontent%2fparts%2fcarriers%2f%2fcommon+carrier+breaks.inc
Question, where to find such a carrier? Is this a chance to upgrade to Suregrip?
I don't really know much about differentials, or where to get such parts and what they're worth.
(I know the general perception is that 7.25" unit is weak, however I never abuse a car with 'neutral bombs' or burnouts or stomping the gas over railroad tracks / potholes. I'm the guy gurgling along at 50 km/hr in construction zones while everybody else goes sailing by
so I'm gonna chance it.)
