Building up a hp D44

A buddy wants to know about high pinion d44.


Here's the idea.
but first we need to know if a front D44 centersection is identical to a rear?

Idea:

Front centersection flipped with rear tubes and shafts.

and then either normal or reverse cut gears whichever work/best. (haven't taken a look at them and flipped them over yet.)

So ya? Does that work?
It should.. according to logic.

Re: Building up a hp D44

The thing I'd be nervous about is oiling. Have you thought about that?

you can't flip a center section to get a high pinion. it will run backwards. in order for this to work you need to find a hp front axle and retube it for the rear. the ring and pinion will have to be reverse cut.

I'm pretty sure that's not what reverse cut means. It has to to with the second angle that alows the teeth to mesh together. Oh crap... somebody that can type and knows the proper terms feel free to jump in.

Well I think that a reverse cut would mean the gears angle of cut is reversed from the "normal" angle of cut, hence the reverse rotation when the axle is flipped over. Maybe Will can jump in here with one of his illustrations to give some visual aide here. I believe this is called a helical* (spelling) cut.

Re: Building up a hp D44

A buddy of mine has a Front Ford D44 HP w/disk brakes in the rear of his CJ5 which is on 40's. You'd have to see the jeep to believe it... Its a beast.
