hello
i recently got a ea spac 5 speed .
i was wondering what ratios did they come with.
i had a look at the diff this morning and the ratio tag said 2.92
i thought they had 3.08 and 3.23.
also on the filler plug there is a tag that said slip resistant.
does this mean that its a lsd .. because it doesnt spin both wheels.
but i guess the centre could be stuffed..
anyway if it has a lsd centre would it be 25 or 28 spline axles..

any info on diff ratio combinations would be good

thanks :) :)

Hey, according to Ford EA series 1 diffs were the following
3.2 man - 3.23
3.9 cfi & mpi man - 2.92
3.9 both & 3.2 sedan auto - 2.77
3.2 wagon auto - 3.23

series 2
3.9 both man - 2.92
3.9 cfi 4-spd auto - 3.08
3.9 mpi 4-spd auto - 3.23

lsd versions are supposed to have a metal tag on the oil filler plug, maybe yours once did limit slip but the clutches are now stuffed.
not sure about the spline though

OK thanks

that was quite helpfull.
considering it has a 2.92 diff
its pretty quick in first and second .
i was suprised how punchy it is down low.
but i have only owned auto falcons..
i might change it to 3.45 and see what happens


thanks heaps
:)
