Hey all I bought a Frankenstein of a D50 a few months ago and finally have the money to start fixing her up. I have a few questions and I'm not exactly sure where to post this. It's a 84 body on a 86 frame and the guy said that it has the 2.6 motor but under the hood says that it's the 2.0 G63B is there an easy way to ID which it is?
Anyhoo, the main question I have for you guys is that the guy I bought it from said that it has 462 axles and was running 35 inch tires on it. It came with 30 inch tires but they are junk. I'm not sure where I need to be tire size wise for optimal gear ratios. At 55 in 5th I'm running at 2.6k and the speedo reads about 61 MPH. I'm only getting about 14 MPH and I have the Weber carb so somethings up. I figured the gear ratios would be a good place to start.
Thanks for your help guys in advance!
