To aid pulling away and the use of the 5th gear, I have just changed the final drive bevel box gearing on my California Vintage outfit

A great mod, as the outfit now pulls away very cleanly from standstill and I've got the use of the 5th gear back at "normal" cruising speeds. By normal I mean 3000 rpm at about 65 mph.

A bit of an investment and I've got no idea about fuel consumption as yet but I am very happy with the result as I seen to be at the right RPM / gear for the road speed attained!

The ring and pinion set was listed at 7-37 at a 5.28 ratio and the supplier was Stein-Dinse. Price 339 euros, circa £35.00 for a gasket set and then £200 for fitting/alignment.
