Since my rear end, er well, my CAR's rear end went from a 3.00 to a 3.70 my speedometer is waaaaaaay off. They want an arm and two legs to put one in at the shop 3 hours from here. Is there somewhere I can get one and the right one and put it in myself?

On my cat I calibrated the speedo by going to the ford garage and buying a speedo gear for about 6 bucks. I had the 3:70's in at the time and ended up using a 21 tooth gear but thats with an AOD. Someone might have the info for your trans but I don't. You might pull your gear and take it to the ford dealer and buy one with 2 or 3 more teeth to get it closer.
Good luck

Take your speedo out look at the angle of the cut and how many teeth then go to ford and buy one closer to what will slow it down. Bruce
