Quick question for you guys... I have a 14 bolt FF in my 1986 1 ton diesel... on the gear it has the GM part number then 9 41 11 85

I beleive I have 4:56 gears, which works out
but 41/11=3.73

so what gears do I have??? And I think this is a limited slip, but I'm not sure???

I don't know about the gear serial numbers, but you should be able to mark the pinion and the ring gear, and count the number of revolutions. 3-3/4 revolutions of the pinion for one revolition of the ring gear means 3.73 gears, 4 revolutions means 4.10s, and 4.5 revolutions means 4.56s.
Another really easy way to tell is to count the number of teeth on each and do some simple division. :roll:
if i remember correctly
the 1st 2#s is the ratio, the second was the production dates.

which would make sense, since you say its a 1986 1 ton.

I think the diff. between a open and limited diff is one has 4 holes for the cross pins this be the open one and the limited one is 3 holes.
Cool, thanks guys... I was really hoping for a good ratio and 456's are pretty much as good as it gets from factory
