well...drawing a BLANK on the CIDD......
the 3.59 I know to be the ratio....
AND the D4TE is ..."DATE".......December.
But all the numbers i find start with W.....
Why does this one have a "C"...?
Oh yeah...The door plate says the axle is a "J" code for locking differential...BUT IT'S NOT.......What is the deal with that?
yup...stock Fordo in her now...
The 66' 200 was likely put in after someone tried to take her out on the hiway and found out too late that wasnt the original intention for these "compacts"...lol
I am hoping to come across a SROD for this 66' block. Will the high mount starter be an issue?
When i get the "new" engine/trans here i hope the center link will work.
Probably gonna change the rear gear to a 3-1 or 3.03 - 1 for some better hiway cruising
Ford RUG SR-OD: "Weak sister" single rail 4 speed overdrive, originally designed for and installed in Granada's with 200/302's in an effort to improve fuel economy after the first Arab Oil Embargo ended (1974).
Ford began installing them in F100/150's, Econolines, Fairmont/Zephyr's in 1978 for the same reason: Better MPG. Replacement parts are slim and none, expensive when you do find them.
The end of the shifter fits into a plastic bushing that was notorious for breaking. Lotsa luck finding any, it's been obsolete for decades and what NOS was layin' around has mostly been bought up.
