My question is directly targetted at the Mod i.e. Mr Captain
I searched and found the gear ratios of suzuki samurai here http://www.lepayne.com/gears.html
As per this in high range the stock T case ratio is 1:1.4
Does it mean 1 turn input from gearbox to 1.4 turn output to the rear drive shaft or vice versa ?
Option (a) : In case its 1 turn input vs 1.4 turn output - I will retain the case
Option (b) : In case its 1.4 turn input vs 1 turn output I will remove the case
If (a) is true I would like to retain the case and modify the transfer case gearing to say 1: 1.7 or 1: 1.8 or 1 : 2.0
In that case the effect on engine rpm for a fixed vehicle speed would be to reduce the engine rpm by the ratios 1.4 / 1.8 etc (= 78% of present engine rpm)
Effectively increasing the speed of vehicle by 22% for a fixed engine rpm if we look it from another point of view.
Whatever is true ... do reply as I am hell bent on reducing engine rpm's . Thereby gaining fuel efficiency and reducing engine wear, my ride being a city commuter.
