Fords?A 4 speed has a lower gear than a 5 speed.A 5 speed such as in a T-Bird 4cyl.
has a 2nd. gear of 150.
To check it.With trans out.Put trans in the gear you want to check,mark the front and rear shafts.Turn the front shaft counting how many times it goes around to the rear shafts one time.Hope this helps.
