  1. I have been in an intensive information exchange with another forum member the past weeks regarding a never ending subject to our trucks: how to alter the rear end to get a better road performance. We did some research, have read many reports in the forum here and many other sources. We both ave a 1939 Plymouth PT81 truck. We plan to change the ratio from 4.1 to 3.73. What we know we could do: 1st: a swap to another rear end out of another vehicle like Jeep Cherokee, Ford Explorer or something else (not what we prefer) 2nd: a swap of the axle carrier assembly (11 bolt, 10 spline shafts) out of a mopar passenger car, years 37 - 53 -> passenger gear carrier to truck axle housing (didn't find one up to now) 3rd: exchange of the truck's 4.1 ring and pinion to 3.73 truck ring and pinion (impossible to find) Long story short: What we would like to know is: Does anyone know, if ring and pinions out of passenger cars fit to the truck's ring and pinion carrier? To be more precise: 3.73 ring and pinion out of any mopar passenger car to the 1939 Plymouth truck rear end carrier ? Thank you much ! Rear_Axle_Fundamentals.pdf

  3. I have seen several comments/posts discussing installing a jeep rear axle in a B1B. My questions are "just how difficult is it", It welding required, or is it "bolt on", Do I need to modify the drive shaft, and will the brake lines connect-or do I have modify something there also? Can anyone point me to more specific procedures on this forum?
  4. Hello, I have a 52 Pilothouse that I want to put a 318 or 360 with an auto trans in it. Could you please help me get this started? What are the best known ways in which to accomplish this? So far I have only found bits and pieces of intel on this. Are there particular engine years more accommodating than others? What mods will need to be done to fit a 727 trans in? are there particular rear ends that work better than others to handle the V8? I want to keep it all Mopar, no cross corp if possible. Your help is greatly appreciated, I just want to get this started. Thank you
