I have a 1952 Dodge pilothouse looking to make 1st gear more usable on the 4 speed and like to be able to drive on the freeway. Would a 3.54 gear be the best and where would find one?

1946-48 Chrysler 6 cyl. Windsor Hydraulically operated trans has a 3.54 rear end. 10 Spline axles.

So my 1952 has 10 spline axles ? Chrysler only had the 3.54 10 spline for 2 years ? This might be an impossible dream.

I found a 3.54 open, part number 435 interchange number 435 CH1S48 on ebay .Will my axles work on this pumkin?

Yes but--

It will most l;likely be a 3.9 ratio.

More 3.73 10 spline ratio pumpkins are out there and also fit.

 

The 3.54 ratio gears are a hard but Not impossible find!

 

But some cars also have a optional 4.1 so check the ration stamped in one of several areas of his pumpkin. Look near the fill plug Or up on the top edge.

 

A lot of heavy cleaning will most likely be needed to find the hand stamped in ratio #. Good luck.
