what gear ratio and width might a International travellall V8 have?

Im more concerned with the width, than the ratio...

I can get it, or a 1981 Wagoneers rear AMC 20 for teh same price
will the ring&pinion carrier from a CJ model 20 fit into a FSJ model 20 and vice versa? they are the same right?

the scout is 5 bolt, my front Wag 44 is a 6 bolt, but can be converted, so the bolt pattern isnt an issue

Im leaning towards the dana 44 for used parts availability ( gears lockers)
but then Im money in teh hole to convert the front axle to 5 bolt FORD pattern..

any and all input APPRECIATED!

Hey Matt... Id say go with the M20 ... Its got 1 piece axles and overall MUCH
stronger then the D44... Yeah the gears are swapable... This way you will be able to
keep the widths the same and so on. Need more info? Mail me ill tell you :eek:)

im not sure about the "much stronger" part...

there is a 1970-71 wag with a dana20 and dana 44 centered rear I might get instead of the 81 wag AMC 20 rear, I just have to make sure the 44 doesnt have 2 pc axles, a source on teh fullsized forum listed 70-71 as possible years for a tapered axle 44...I sure dont want that...

id rather have 44s front and rear, thats fewer spares to have on hand, and easier to find gears for

If memory serves (and it might not), some rear axles in the Travelalls were D60's, semi-floating, but with the 5x5.5 bolt pattern.
