    Ok, Ok, I know my chances are slim, but I thought so what, lets give it a try.
    I want to swap from my 2.56 to 3.23 or 3.42
    Open or posi, does not matter.
    Thanks for watching,
    Ralf

    Ralf-- will you need a new series carrier for this swap?

    Jim, not sure what you mean.
    My plan is to get gears (used or new) and to get a posi from monzaz, or get used gears with used posi and have that rebuild from monzaz.
    I don't know if this is the answer to your question, though.

    He has a posi fix for those 2 series . But Going 3 and up like Jim mentioned you’ll need a new carrier . Maybe you could go 2.93 but have to confirm with Monzaz .

    So when you say "series 1,2,3," you refere to the steps as Jim alias monzaz described below (series1=2.56, series3=3.23-3.42)? Think I got it now :)
    With the OD-trans I need to go above 2.XX, thats why I am looking for 3.23 or 3.42.

    Think I got a 3.23, I will sell complete internals, used. Can check ratio tomorrow for sure if interested.

    Absolutely interested! Is it a posi-unit, or open?

    Thanks a lot for your effort, but that ratio will not work for my purpose.

    Sorry, was sure it was a 3.23 but just have got it mixed up with another car.

    Not a problem at all!!
    Maybe in turn another member thinks he has a 2.76, which will turn out as a 3.23 :):) Keep your fingers crossed for me.

    .... giving it a little push.
    Maybe someone (or his wife) has made a New Years resolution to part from some stuff in the basement or in the garage. In that case I am more than happy to help out :)
