My dads 75 had an intermittant break in the circuit for the elec. ignition due
to poor weather proofing, it caused the truck to randomly misfire, which
heated up the plugs, and caused dieseling. Also heavily fouled plugs can
retain heat and cause dieseling, but unless your carb is way screwy, or the
plugs weren't changed at rebuild, you shouldn't have that problem.

I replaced the c-4 with a FMX several years ago, in my opinion a much
better built tranny(mine holds a gallon more fluid than c-4), had it in
a '78 t-bird behind a 351w for years, now living happily behind my
trucks 302. When doing this swap, i had to change the yoke on my 9"
(the fmx output shaft was half again the size of the c-4's) the yoke
rides on the pinion shaft retained by nut as Azie has stated. I used a
puller to remove and torqued new yoke to ensure proper pinion to ring
gear mesh (good time to install new seal). The fun part was making the
driveshaft:) The I-beam bushings come out without too much trouble once
you remove the bolts, just put a long piece of conduit above axel and
pry downwards. The radius arm bushings required a proper application of
the torch.

Not necessarilly...my '61 F-100 (all stock) has a 9" in the back and a
Dana 44 up front. The 9" is 3.89 and the 44 is 3.92. As far as I can
tell, this is because these are the ratios that are available in this
range, and no other reason.

In my opinion, the 3 tenths of a point spread makes absolutely no
difference. Tire wear and even pressure could make more of a difference
than that.

There is a web site somewhere that lists all the available ratios for
every axle. I can't find it now, it belongs to some parts specialist or
something. Maybe somebody can point me there.
