That is a good question and one that is tossed around quite a bit in several forms of racing. I have never seen a chassis dyno test between a standard rear end and a quick change. My guess is somewhere between 5 to 15 horsepower loss from a 9" Ford to a quick change, however I have heard people estimating 25 to 40 horsepower loss.

how much horsepower/torque is this rear rated for? Am looking for a good rear for a 1930 model A hot rod build, running a blown hemi rated at approx. 550hp.

Winters does not give a specific horsepower or torque rating to their rear ends but we have customers around the world that have far in excess of 500 horsepower using these rear ends without problems.

2.5" offset You list a 2.5" offset to the axles. Does this mean that the center section and drive shaft would NOT in the center of the axle? If so, why???

No the pinion is centered in this rear end. The 2 1/2" axle offset refers to the distance from the end of the axle tube flange to the axle face where the wheel bolts on.

Is the 56" dimension from outside axle face to axle face or from the brake flange surfaces? I thinking of running this in a 1936 Ford coupe with a T5 5 speed and parallel leaf springs. I noticed you have a drum brake application for the 2.5" axle offset value but don't see a disc kit for 2.5" offset. Any ideas?

(Part #484101221)
                        

Lucas Oil SAE 75w-140 Synthetic Gear Oil is a non-foaming, super slick, long lasting lubricant designed especially for heavy duty or high performance applications where regular gear lubricants just aren't good enough.

Contains a special additive package that cushions gears and resists "squeezing out" under extreme pressure situations where other gear lubricants just aren't good enough. Specially designed to stand up to high temperatures without losing its lubricity.

Excellent for use in limited slip differentials.

  • Heavy duty
  • High performance
  • Stands up to high performance
  • Cools and quiets

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
