[Question about replacing the stock 4.875:1 gears with 4.11:1 on a 1940 3/4
ton truck with 85 horse power engine]

I have a 1935 half-ton truck with a 85 horse power engine and 3.55 gears
instead of 4.11 and it does fine. I would guess you could drop down as low
a 3.78 for a 3/4 ton.

I don't think you can drop in a later rear-end without also changing the
transmission since I think you have a torque tube rear end still. If you
have an open drive shaft I would guess that a Ford 9" would fit, but don't
know what you would do for rear springs.
