Hi All

I know I have seen these somewhere but cant for the life of me locate them.

What are the different diff ratios for different models ?

The reason for asking this (sorry if its posted else where) is that I have acquired another rear axle with the ratio 8/37 looks like a Bedford type and is it the right one for ours. Its a CF1 250.

Thanks
Nigel Packer

CF1 250 model normally has the 8/37 final drive ratio unless fitted with a factory option (Code) which may be on the Service Parts Identification (SPI) plate alongside the weights plate attached to the passenger side door frame (lock) side or vertical panel in the passenger foot well (chassis cowl models).

Codes

    904 - 7/37
    912 - 8/37
    925 - 9/47
    925 - 11/49
    926 - 7/41

Cheers Phil

I have just had a look at the plates on the passenger door pillar and there is the axle weight plate, the Vauxhall BS plate and another one with just a string of numbers stamped into it. Is this the plate? The first set of numbers seem to have the chassis number as part of it. :?:

SPI plate -

3-character codes are Factory options
Any 4-character codes (usually the last on a plate) are Special Version Option Scheme (SVOS) codes for body builders and fleet operators.

Cheers mate thank you that's the one :)

I have also just read another of your posts that suggest that the axle code wont be on the plate if its bog standard so that sorts that little mystery. :thumb: :thumb: so 8/37 it is then

Standard axle ratio is related to the chassis number and production year group, like engine type, chassis configuration etc. Codes indicate non-standard options and versions.
