Model T Custom need Gear SetNovember 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.
