Default Re: 1940 truck suspension

I wasn't sure of the ratio so I went and cleaned the underside and found 3:54 stamped in it. So I clamped vise grips on the shaft and turned the tire two complete revs and counted just over 3 1/2 turns on the shaft. I had a friend explain how to do this and when we were done he informed me this is a kinda rare rear end and I should replace the one in my 40 with this one. Long story short I'm going to keep it and use it. I apologize and will remove from the ad
