HOW DOES THE SPEEDO CABLE ATTACH WITH THIS KIT? MY T-5 HAS A SPEED SENSOR OUTPUT, NOT A SPEEDO CABLE. DOES YOUR KIT HAVE THE ABILITY TO MOUNT THE ORIGINAL SPEEDO GEAR AT THE DIFFERENTIAL? IF WE HAVE ENOUGH REAL ESTATE ON THE PINION SHAFT, IT COULD BE ADDED, EH? WHAT ARE YOUR OPTIONS OR SUGGESTIONS?

We apologize but do not have a kit to move the original style Speedometer drive to the input shaft. The only simple solution would be to change to an electronic speedometer.

Model A open driveline kit. How do you drive in the pin and install the set screws, it appears that the hole in the yoke is behind the seal in the housing? Thanks, Ray

The Model A open drive conversion actually comes with a new pinion shaft and on the end by the yoke it is retained by a bolt and large washer on the front of the yoke. The bolt goes into the center of the new pinion shaft and this particular kit does NOT make use of a pin and set screws.

We offer 3 different open drive conversions and our catalog has a misprint on the years covered. Part number 9191105 is for the 6 spline rear ends from ’35-48, 9191106 is for the 10 spline and also for ’35-48, and 9191111 is fro the Model A rear ends. If you enter part number 9191105 on our website and go to the second page by clicking on the photo or wording you can scroll down and see the pdf instruction file in purple print. Click on this for detailed instruction and assembly. The Model A kit also comes with a new 10 spline pinion to justify the increase in price.

Lubrication Engineers SAE 140 Weight Gear Oil, 1 Gallon
(Part #91044140)
                        

Whether you're running a stock flattie and rearend or hopped-up overhead and quick change, you need to run a good gear lube. Remember that your rearend was designed fifty plus years ago and needs all the help it can get. The biggest improvement you can give it is a lubricant that will allow the gears to survive the highway speeds that cars see today. L.E. gear oil is what we use in our 350 mph streamliner, that uses a V-8 quick change, without failure. The "red stuff" provides superior lubrication for long gear life. You can't win if you don't finish. We suggest 90 weight for the street and 140 weight for extreme uses.

  • Formulated using blends of high quality paraffinic and synthetic base fluids
  • Contains a highly shear stable tackiness
  • Unique blend of base fluids and thermally stable EP additives
  • Separates readily from water
  • Contains non-silicone defoaming additives
  • Contains no solids
  • Contains DUOLEC LE's proprietary dual acting liquid wear-reducing and extreme pressure additive
