Ok, maybe you had a 3.35 gear set, which you can get a 0.9 5th for, which also works with your gearset, but is only convert your 5th from 0.76 to 0.80!

maybe it is a 3.35. I need to get back under the thing and see what the tag on it says.

The only 2.95 Ford was the "Z" aftermarket box and the early NWC boxes.

If you got the box from a junkyard, it's going to be a 3.35 if it's a WC and 2.95 if it's a NWC.

Should be picking the diff up from Wier in a couple of days. Then I can put the rear end together and finish up with that mess.

So had to cut down the threaded shaft of the Subaru brake booster, even with the GSLSE brake booster spacer to get the pedal adjusted right. That said brakes are bled!

yea yea yea. I've been doing things.

Case in point!

The diff is in. 5.29 final drive with solid pinion sleeve and the Supra LSD with Weir kit. AND nothing is leaking after I added fluid. Horrah.

Related. The wheels fit. Which is good. Because wheels need to fit, or so I'm told.

Still working with the engine bay now. Need to finish some wiring, vacuum bits, the throttle linkage, some minor other things. More of a time issue at this point. The exhaust is the next big hassle.

it cranks!

a little more wiring and it should start.

That said, having issues fitting a muffler still. Might either have the RB muffler stick out the back farther and look a little stupid or hope that i find another option.
