If you have one you know what I'm talking about.

A Crown guy wants a 3.50 1st gear in a Corvair box.

1966-67 only big car 4 speed with small reverse gear.

Three cuts on the main drive input clutch splines.

We need the whole tranny or just a 3.50 gear set.

BTW...don't try to tell me it cant be done.

Already talked to the guy that knows everything.

Building a 3.50 wide is no different than 2.56 close.

You just have to have the correct centered counter gear.

Just Curious why a V8 car would want such a low 1st gear ? Mike

When I was a Chevy parts counterman, I helped one of the mechanics build one of those. Even in the mid '70s, those gears were hard to find. The mechanic's personal vehicle was a Chevy G-20 van with a factory Saginaw 4-sp. He towed a camper trailer and the low first gear was a god-send. We used a Corvair reverse idler gear.
