YOUR AXLE RATIO IS 4.11 TO 1 OR POSSIBLY A 4.55 TO 1 .particksantiquecars.com OFFERS A 3.55TO1 RATIO CONVERSION ,IT IS RATHER EXPENSIVE FOR SOME PEOPLE AT $ 450.00 plus bearings and ect. another way to go would be to buy taller [larger size ] tires that would reduce engine rpms .A TIRE THAT MEASURES 100 INCHES ON THE OUTSIDE AS OPPOSED TO 90 INCHES WOULD REDUCE RPM BY 10 PERCENT SAME AS A 3.60TO 1 REAR RATIO.USE CAUTION THE WHEELS THAT ARE ONLY 4 INCHES BETWEEN BEADS WILL SPLIT IF TIRE IS TO WIDE .THEY MADE A 5 INCH ALSO.
