how come the tailshafts in the EB onward break? did ford decide to go cheap and put it weaker units? Don't hear any of the old fords that are worked breaking tailshafts.


Tailshaft length and speed compared to previous models, lower diff ratio and overdrive combination, the old diff ratios were commonly 2.75 (9")2.77, 2.93,and 3:1(9" manual Falcons), compared to the common 3.08, 3.23 and 3.45 in 4 speed auto Falcons.

There were other ratios but most of those ratios were either rare or fitted to lower spec cars (200CI etc) which were not expected to achieve a high speed.
