What are these metrics 7.5 stock gears?
I beleive the gears in our pure stock are something like that was going to replace them cause we are out geared in our 79 Pontiac Grand Prix.Wanna trade??

I think I have something close to what you want.... I had a set I took out of our car but I don't remember the exact gear ratio.

I will look for them today & post back later.

I checked & I marked the box 2.14 gears for 7.5 rearend.


if you could use them I will sell them cheap @ $20.00 & that would include shipping in the US.

Ok, just got his email & sent a reply.

Not sure why I saved those gears but I am happy someone can use them.

Have you considered running your T350 in second gear? With 3.73 gears in second (1.52 ratio) your final will be a 5.67 and the transmission will last longer. If you're running a T350 on a 1/2 mile track you need all the reliability you can get. Also you gain 7 to 8 horsepower due to less planetary drag in the transmission by running in second instead of first. Also if you don't have a DEEP pan, get one, fluid capacity is your best friend when racing an automatic.
