Differential gear ratios Question
Posted by: Lane66m ()
Date: October 11, 2017 07:37AM

I just counted the teeth on the pinion and carrier gears in the 2 transaxles I got with the Greenbrier. One was 9 & 36 which comes up as a 3.55 gear ratio. The other is 8 & 34 which comes up as a 4.25 gear ratio.

Was there ever a 4.25 gear ratio in the Vairs? Or do I have to go back and count the teeth again. I used yellow crayon so not to lose count.

The differential has the early 1/4 bolt yokes.

Are you counting transmission or differential gears?

4.27 was a transmission gear.
