    This truck has a 266, 4speed, with a 2 speed rear end. Anybody have an idea what the rear end ratios would be? Also, the cab is pretty complete but beat up being an old ranch truck. Nothing in the dash works. Are these harnesses same as the lighter duty B's? Finally, I need a front drum. Drivers side has 2 big cracks in it. Anybody have one?

    Thanks!

    Ratios: Set the rear axle up on jack stands. put a mark on the drive shaft and on both wheels.
    Turn the drive shaft by hand and count the revolutions of shaft and wheel. The shaft will turn several times to get one full revolution of the wheel. Simple math for the ratio.

    Drum: Inside diameter. Width of swept area. Bolt pattern. ???
