3-5 is better. If it's adjustable, 4 would be good. 6 could be OK if the float has high "buoyance", like Beyoncé does. OOps I was typing/checking web while Tim responded. His info is 3.5-4.5 and has a source to back it up. Good post Tim, a

BudRod, should probably move this to the Driveline Forum but I'll say this..... the torque tube can be pulled out and a rear end up thru 1962 will bolt into the original housing. I used a 1959 pumpkin but the 3.90 rear end was to low for me as I'm ru
