Early Dodge high speed gear set

Recommended Posts

There was a Dodge high speed ring and pinion gear set on Ebay recently. It is 47/13 teeth and was supposed to be from a 1917 Dodge Roadster. My 1923 Dodge has 50/12

47/13 is 3.61 ratio

50/12 is 4.16 ratio

I have alway found my Dodge very low geared and it definitely feels it could use taller gearing. Has anyone with an early Dodge had any experience with this ratio gear set?

Anyone have this ratio set for sale?

Any opinions are welcome.

Thanks

Dodge brothers hard to find high speed ring and pinion; stamped 47/13.

This were usually found on 1917 roadsters. Fits 1914 to 1920's Dodge brothers.

Great for highway cruising or that speedster project. Great original condition for 100 years old.

I had a set of these high speed gears in my 1917 roadster years ago. From my research I found that they only came in the 1917 Dodge roadster. They are unfortunately extremely rare. Bob Long did make high speed gears for the semi floating rear end. Those sets have been dispersed far and wide at this time.

How did you find the gearing? Was it much better for higher speeds?
