WANTED...Comet Transmission or Lower Rear

Postby gmsnowball » Tue Jul 10, 2018 5:57 pm

Looking for a 3 speed transmission or lower rear gear for my 202 Comet. I have currently have a 277 transmission from a 65 Falcon and has an extremely tall first gear. I have a 3:20 rear and I either need a lower rear or a better transmission. Anyone have either a better transmission or a lower geared rear? Willing to travel if necessary, the wife and I love road trips.

I have both but I am hanging on to them for now, my rear would be way too low anyway at 4:11 because it leaves you with no top end.

Sorry I could not be more help.

I have a set of 2.80 rear gears out of my 66 eight inch. Gears are good and still attached to an open differential.

Not sure where you're located, but I have one of the "toploader over drive" 3+1 trans that's the same size as a 3.03. It wouldn't take much to take it home. I'm in southeast TN.

Currently diligently patiently trying to complete my 65 Futura long term project. . . . .
