Miscellaneous Parts Wanted
« on: May 29, 2021, 03:46:42 PM »
PLEASE scroll down to the last post made as I will will likely be adding things to my wanted list. That is why I listed as looking for Miscellaneous Parts.

*WHEELS FOUND & BOUGHT*

Currently, I'm looking for a pair of 15 X 8" or 8.5" aluminum wheels with 4.5" Ford/Mopar bolt pattern. Either aluminum slots or 5-spokes like Torq-Thrust wheels is what I'd like to find.

Looking for 8 3/4" Mopar Spool for 30 Spline Axles. Also, good, re-useable Ring and Pinion for 8 3/4" Mopar for 741 3rd member with 29 spline pinion. Gear ratio not critical, but thinking anything from 3.23 to 4.11.

Long time Mopar guy here
The 741 was the weakest of the three 8 3/4's  The 742 is the top--straight shimable pinion--easy to set up--the 489 has thick pinion also but used crush sleeve for pinion bearing preload--you can buy a steel spacer to eliminate the crush sleeve but that is added expense--shoot for a 742 for the best --I have broken 741 pinions before
also gear selection is much better for 489 and 742 style units   just a note there are two pinion splines fine and course yokes are interchangeable if splines are correct  Keep your old pinion shims they can be reused and the new ones are usually India or china junk

By all means, I appreciate the info, tips and suggestion, dusterdave. The FED I'm gathering parts for will be powered by a very mild 283 SBC, from which I'm only expecting a realistic 250+/- HP. With that in mind I'm thinking the 741 pinion should live. I understand that time might bring changes that bring more HP but already have a lot of parts including a 29 spline pinion coupler so I'm going to cross my fingers and plan to use the 741 3rd member for now.

Thanks

Lynn
