odd gear ratio

does any one know what vehicle to look in to find a dana 44 ring and pinion, 4.27:1. I managed to blow up the ring gear in my rear end at the bash.

Well I'm not sure what vehicle to look for and there is a 4.27:1 D44 set but what do you have in the front end??

Better be another D44 because there isn't a R/P in the Jeep world that is 4.27:1. It's gonna be much better if they match.

Count some teeth.

Re: odd gear ratio

Waggies used the 4:27 gear set. International used it, maybe not in the scout, but in there trucks. Im sure chevy used it at one time or another also. But good luck finding it. They arent the most popular.

Re: odd gear ratio

Well you got me to dig through my pile of crap.... I have a strange set of gears that are not AMC20 or Dana30, but sorry to say nothing that will help you.

And I lied about 4.27:1 in the Jeep world.... in the Kaiser era there were D27/D44 combos with 4.27:1. But from the 70's and the AMC years with D30 front it didn't happen.

Likely over priced www.nationaldrivetrain.com will sell you a set of D44 4.27:1 R/P for $135 brand spanking new.

Are those IH Scout axles? or what?

Sorry I don't have great answers.

Re: odd gear ratio

Their right Joel. They did make them, but not a common one. I would have to say you'll end up with new unless your really lucky. And if you do find a used one (minus ebay) you better buy a lottery ticket.

on a side note.....(sarcastic tone) GEEEEEEE I wonder how that would have happened. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: odd gear ratio
