Re: Looking for a new rear end

Where are you from? I don't think you want to ship one.

There's a heavy truck/bus salvage yard in most major cities.

rear end

Before buying any parts, it would be wise to get a build sheet from the local IHC dealer. Usually with no charge, using the bus ID number. I have a BB with a 7.3 and allison trans. I just bought some different gears for my bus. My bus has a 411 and I bought some 373 gears. The gears are not yet installed as I may have gone too high a ratio for the power available. I just returned from a 2500 mile trip and lost a coolant hose resulting in a broken head gasket. The last 125 miles were on a hook. I guess I expected too much from 125HP. Now there are lots of new decisions to make
The least expensive method changing rear gears is simply buying new gears, about $600, buying a used rear gear set attached to a carrier, or the complete rear axle assembly. First decide what is needed then begin the search. Heavy items are easier to go get the parts. Shipping is very spendy/pricey. Frank
