Did later cabbys come factory with close ratio?

If you are going to go anywhere, better make sure your tranny can handle the load. Gear changes for the power hungry should be talked about here. Is that a LSD I see in your pocket?

Did later cabbys come factory with close ratio?

Post by Dub Delay » Sun Oct 30, 2005 1:37 am

I have an 87 cabby with a close ratio tranny, a 9A. Is it supposed to have a close ratio? The tranny is going to go soon, syncronizers are shot, big pices of metal were stuck to the drain plug when I drained it today and it grinds going into 3rd and 4th.

I'd like to replace it with a wider ratio, the close ratios are fun for drag racing, but too low geared for everyday driving imo, i like to be able to cruise through town in 3rd. I seem to remember the last cabby (1992) I drove 10 years ago was a wide ratio.
