Been offered a 3.31 R&P for a 1030... I may just keep the original 1030, swap out the 3.73s for the 3.31, install the TrueTrac and drive it till I break it.

It should hold up fine. I’m not much of hard launching drag racer. This 5.0 doesn’t make all that much power. The most abuse this car will see is track days at VIMC when I get the suspension sorted... it really needs suspension upgrades. Getting some serious wheel hop.

Good luck finding one of those, though.

I think the easiest would probably be a 960-I wagon, 92 to 94, with solid axle. Unless the gear sets can also be swapped out of the IRS differentials in the sedans and late 960/x90 platform?
I *think* that's a mis-print? The "GLE" & "N/A 4-cylinder" part is right, though?
All 700 manual 16V I've seen had a 3.91...all ~12 USA market 700 16V they sold w/manual.
They've also had M46 instead of M47 & Hydro clutch like the 700Ts instead of cable like the others..

4-Cylinder 8v N/A 700 USA Manual is 3.31 just like the 2.3L SOHC EFI USA 240s.
They're "out there" in 7/9s a bit.

3.54 in Turbo-diesel M46 700 or 700T M46.
Or basically all the USA Diesel manual cars 2 or 7, broadly.
Only seen 1030 in the 240 though; riddle if you insist on 2xx + 1031 in that particular ratio/break out the special pinion depth setter tools and go find a late stick shift 700T manual
Maybe 164s that got 1031s early got 3.54s got those?
164 auto-tragic should have 3.31 most years too.
1975 164 has a 240 axle housing/suspension mounting points.

Seen the odd optional towing ratio axle in a 2/7/9, but factory that's just what I've observed.

'92-'94 960 MK1 Wagon; 3.31 solid axle/probably where you're most likely to find one as someone looking for a solid axle in 3.31 for 7/9, yes.

I have the local guys looking for an axle.

Is it safe to say a 1986+ 240 will have a 1031 axel? That's what I have them going by. The newer the better chance I suppose

It should be. It will say what it is right on the bar code tag.

This is what I got for pictures.

1030 or 1031

No year given. Just ‘86+ with electric speedo.





Opinions?

I guess the question remains. Will it be a direct swap into my 1981? Driveshaft, brake Caliper mounts, rotors... etc.

What’s the best way of plugging the sensor hole?
