I have a rebuilt 200-4r from a project I gave up on. I'm considering putting it in my '56. Do you think my rear end is too high geared for such an application?

I take you are talking about when it goes into OD which is D. Is your car a highway driver (lower rpm torque) or high performance? You can use a formula to see rpms at a certain speed.

https://www.ringpinion.com/calculators/Calc_RPM.aspx

1:1 in 3rd gear - normally will not go into lockup

I think .7 in OD.

If you have lockup it will reduce about 200 rpm more at cruising speed - no acceleration.

If you do not want OD put shifter in 3rd. 1 to 1

Trans will run coolest in Lockup, but trans heat may not be a problem, with a trans cooler and how you drive the 56.

I had a 3:08 rear end with a 700 R4 trans in my 70 stepside. with a basic 350 Goodwrench engine. It was a pleasure to drive. It would pull long hills on the interstate in o-drive w/AC on with no problem. If I did have a long hard pull with a load I could lock it in direct drive & still run as fast as I wanted.
I kick myself every day for selling that truck.


They say money can't buy happiness. It can buy old Chevy trucks though. Same thing.

It is a highway cruiser with a stock Goodwrench engine. Using the calculator above I would be at 1900 rpm at 70 mph. But that is for a .70 OD and the 200-4r is a .67 OD. George, do you remember what size tires you were running? Mine are 225/60R16.

Yes. They were 235/75/15. They measured just shy of 29 in.

Thanks. Mine measure just over 26". I think I'd be right on the borderline.

Use an on/off switch for the lockup and you may be happy with it.

3.07 rear, .67 OD, 26" tires, 70 MPH.
=1,861 RPM.
At 100 MPH, you would be at 2,658 RPM.

Yeah, it is a little too high geared for it. I have an appointment to get the leak fixed on the TH400 Monday.
