Barnfind -- in my case, before I reengined to the 261 ... the 4.10 upgrade with the 216 was incredible. But ... the poor 216 ran out of oompah. It could hold 65 until the slightest hill or bump came along. Or a slight head wind ... But on the flat, the 216-powered 3804 could hit 70 and cruise (mostly) at or above 60. It just had no power. the 261 fixed all that wink

Panel Fan, It is a stock 53 chevy 3600 3/4 ton. I believe the stock gears were 4.56! Something like that.


And I don't have a 216
I have a 235, I'm gonna take the truck out tomorrow after work and see how well it drives on the highway.
Woot Woot!!!!

How did it do? I just discovered that I had a 4.11 3rd member in my possession all along. It was sitting under my parts truck tucked away inside the axle housing. If the bearings and everything check out, mine will be going from 4.57 to 4.11 in a week or two.

For sure! It was definitely a game-changing find. Now I am sourcing 14 bolt brake items so I can swap on 14 bolt brakes to the HO52 axle. HA! Find it when you need it, that is just not in the cards, it is always MIA when you need it, and then magically appears once you buy a new one or don't need it anymore...lol...
