      6.48 is the high ratio. The low one will be 8.48. Both ratios should be noted on the axle assembly itself. I believe all of the 5-speed transmissions had provision for a PTO.

      One nice thing about working on these big trucks is you don't have to jack them up to work on the underside.

        I don't see a PTO on the 5-speed direct, now I am fighting the lug nuts on the right rear, I guess I need more heat.

          That's an awesome truck! Zane L. in Salem has an 8E40.

          I would purchase a copy of the Production Order from the SNM if you haven't already done so.

                It's a 289 that started out life in a Canadian Lark-type or Hawk, built March 4 1964. It's a standard-duty 289, not heavy duty. Unsure what the S308 means.
