gear ratio questions and oil pan removal
I have a NP203 that has been converted so it has manual locking hubs. Question #1: Since the NP203 has been converted, according to the off-road.com website, I have 4 Hi and 4Low, 2 Hi and 2 Low. I checked today and found out that my gear ration is 3.08 [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] When I put on my 33s is this gear ratio going to really slow me down then? When I'm in 4 low or 2 low what is my gear ratio then? Does anyone know how to figure out gear ratios for 4 hi, 4 low, 2 hi, 2 low? Also, how do I figure out my transmission ratio and t-case ratio?
This question if off the subject. My oil pan gasket is leaking. Haynes says that I need to lift the engine to be able to take off the oil pan. From experience, I have found out that the Haynes manual isn't always correct. Can I take off my oil pan with out having to lift the motor?
