I am restoring a Ford 1949 F1 Pickup. I have dropped a 302CI engine & AOD transmission from a 1985 Lincoln Continental into it. I have also installed a rear end from a Ford Granada. The rear end tag reads:
WER V 5MC
2 75 8 7 575B
I'm assuming the gear ratio is 2.75:1. Is the ring gear an 8" or a 8.7"?
Also I am uncertain of the year of build. I believe with an automatic overdrive transmission, I need to consider swapping the gears for a 3.73 or 4.11 ratio.
