Dodge Crown and Pinion Wanted 16 Oct 2021 17:29 #226790

I have up-geared my 1941 Dodge Weapon Carrier from 4.89 to 4.3 in the rear axle. Made a difference on the road.

Needed is another 4.3 crown wheel and pinion to put into the front axle.

I believe this gear ratio was from an early 50's light Dodge truck. The Crown Wheel is 8 3/4 inch on the tooth side.

As it is going in the front with free-wheeling hubs a corroded or worn set would get me out of trouble but prefer a new or good one.

Any leads appreciated.

Here's where to look on an Eaton Gear set...

An even dumber answer. I wrote down the numbers when I fitted the replacement rear unit but have lost them! Short of pulling the front cover off the diff and MAYBE seeing them with a mirror I am stuffed.

Can't fix stupid.

Drop The tail shaft & get a Wire Brush & Cleanup the end of the Pinion shaft & see if there's anything stamped there..!!

Thanks Hayseed.

That number I put up is there OK. I will follow up tracking it to see if something more modern had it (I am pretty sure they did). The main problem is they changed everything in about 1942 from 2 pinion to 4 pinion. I don't know if that bears on the crown wheel and pinion gears. If the Crown wheel is still 8 3/4 it well could fit OK. The mounting bolts increased in size but that is not impossible to correct.
