Re: [FWDLK] transmission



Ok.  Then assuming a cast iron torqueflite, what IS the right information?
I'll admit I'm a muscle car guy.  I've read a ton on this list over the years about converting to the aluminum later trans to get rid of the parking brake at the end of the tailshaft and to use later rear axles that are simpler.
So, I'm guessing the original poster is now completely confused.  And I'm curious as well....
Please, proceed...

Thanks

Except...this isn't a 727. Speedo gears are different for cast iron vs. '62-'65 727 vs. '66-'80's 727 vs. 518. They are all different from each other so you need to understand which one you are dealing with. All the information given has been completely wrong because it doesn't apply to the cast iron torqueflite, which is what the forwardlook uses exclusively (other than the A-bodies).

As described except you will need to “clock” the gear carrier. It has a series of notches in the outer rim of the carrier which you can line up with a tiny pointer notch on the tail shaft housing iirc. There is information out there as to where to clock the carrier for the size (teeth) of gear you are installing. This carrier wheel is offset mounted so it rotates to bring the gear into mesh with the drive gear on the tail shaft. This is what allows for the differing diameters of gear.

The gear is actually in the transmission at the end of the cable, not in the Speedo itself.  Follow the cable down and you will see when it screws into the transmission.  Unscrew the cable and the gear is behind the panel it's screwed into.  It will be fairly obvious how it's attached.  Then just swap them.  Can be done without spilling any tranny fluid if you are careful. Should take less than a half hour to swap.

Enjoy!

  Just curious --  how can you change the speedo-gear ?  The diameter would be different (larger) !!

Ok.
Read the tire size from the sidewall.
Then the rear end ratio.  This is normally stamped on a metal tag attached to the diff.
Now go here:

Pull up torqueflite.  All the transmissions are on the page.

The last one I bought was from mancini racing and they were not too expensive.

Good luck
Thanks!

the height of the tire is the same as the one's that it came with. i do not know the rear gear ratio.

Thank you for posting this thread; I am also interested in updating/correcting my ’56 Ply speedo gear and 65 Ply speedo gear.

To get the right speedometer gear we need the Gear ratio of the rear end and the tire diameter of the rear tires

Gears are easily available in several places
