Model T Custom need Gear Set
November 25, 2014 - Author: BartBarton
Model T Coupe with 302 engine.
Question: Understandably, this is a custom application. I have shoehorned a Hipo 302 with a C4 and narrowed 8″ rear into a 1925 Model T Coupe. I am running 10″x15″ tires on the rear and 5″x14″ up front. Originally the rear had 2.78 gears. I have installed 3.80 with a locker but feel the RPM will be quite high for a comfortable long distance ride and a 12 gallon fuel tank. I am leaning towards either 3.00 or 3.25 rear ration. Any advice?
Answer: Below is a quick formula that will let you calculate te correct gear ratio that you need.
RPM= MPH x Gear Ratio x 336 then divide this by tire diameter in inches. This will tell you what RPM you would be at with whatever MPH & Ratio you select.

Need Aluminum Drive Shaft
November 24, 2014 - Author: BartBarton
I have a K2500 1999 7.4L Automatic 4WD
Question: I have a 1999 K2500 crew cab short box Chev 4X4. It has had a vibration in the driveline since I purchased it used 8 years ago. I have had the driveshafts balanced, I checked the opperating angles of the u joints, hanger bearing replaced along with replacing the u joints. I was made aware that this is an ongoing problem with these trucks and that there was a optional 1 piece aluminum driveshaft available which is no longer available through Chev. Is this something that can be built by provenforce? Any help or suggestions will be greatly appriciated.
