Reply To: Help needed with my 54 Monterey Differential
Virgil & Sue Klein
My shop manual for ’54 shows that only the station wagons have the Dana 44 rear end. All of the others have a standard Ford differential. The gear ratios for the Monterey with overdrive would be 4.09 (45-11) as the standard rear gear or 3.91 (43-11) for the optional rear gear. You no doubt have the Ford differential as they remove the entire assembly from the front of the housing once you remove the axles. Don’t know why the bibliography would show anything different.
