That sounds wonderful, a highway gear ( easy on the motor and better fuel mileage ) and a go fast gear!!! I'll talk to Mike, hear his thoughts.. I love the idea and think Woody and I need to plan another visit.. Please save the 28 spline stuff and again Thanks for your help and friendship to Woody and I through out this build!!  Thanks Gary..

I have a pair of dividers for sale, some pitting, 1) has one prong on the back broken off, should not be an issue. Great for a daily driver or could be re-chromed for show. Located in Des Moines, Iowa cell 515-330-9626

Nice to know I have fello 57 Ranchero owners near by. I'm hope to be able to join up for some cruising once I'm finished!

As for the shift lever, the rubber boot was what was holding it up from sliding out. LOL! Now on to refinishing.
There are a few around. I have a friend with a finished wagon and working on a Ranchero now.
They have repop rubber boot/bushing/insulator if needed.

So I am seeing lots of Rancheros painted Style-Toned with these stainless separators on top of the quarter panels. I am told two stories. One would say it was they way they came originally and the other says it isn't. Can someone chime in and explain if these were original? I don't have these and the truck was originally red and white. If it was the way they came, I really need these separators. Who has them? If anyone here, I would be interested in purchasing a pair. Thanks guys!

Not sure exactly what you are asking. But the shift lever/handle has to be removed first by driving out the roll pin and pulling it out., The end of the shift lever fits into a notch in the stud that is attached the the turn signal housing. You can post pictures here that might help/show what you need help with.

I see we are neighbors..

One of the best features of a 9"...a spare setting in the garage with a go fast gear!!!!

If I was going to go cross country, I'd go 3.00 or even 2.75 with the slippage of the torque converter in your automatic.  For cross country, I've run a 3.00 with a 5 speed Tremec.  I have a 3.00 gear in the Raunch Wagon with FordOMatic running about 3000RPM at 70MPH.  Nice around town but a little high RPM for highway.  I have centers in buckets ready to pop in setup with 4.11, 3.89, 3.50, 3.00 gears, Detroit Lockers, Daytona pinion supports and shimmed pinion gears all 31 spline.  I think there is a loose 2.75 gear and a 3.50 Traction Lok with 28 spline.  I have several used open centers with more road worthy gears.  If it is just a get it to 'Florida and save the engine' gear, you're welcome to try one of those.  I'm still of the opinion that the 28 spline axles will stand up to street abuse with street tires.  Tires under a stock '57 will not likely break 28 spline axles.   If you are narrowing the housing and buying new axles, I would consider making the change to 31 spline axles.  12" sticky tires and high stall convertor might stress 28 spline a bit.

I've said it before, All I want for Christmas is a 4.10 gear!! Looking at your numbers if I drive it south the 3.10 makes more sense..I have a stock 28 spline rear, now I to start looking.
