Comments (1) David Michaud October 14, 2013 at 4:52 pm | # David, I just purchased an A833 from you with 2:47 first gear, close ratio. I have a 69 Dodge Dart with a 340 (all original). i think the stock diff gears are either 3:23 or 3:31. Was this transmission a good choice for street and occasional highway use? If not, then which diff gears would be best? Regards, Dave Reply Leave a comment You must be logged in to post a comment.
