Wow that is quite something!!
I have a 9 tooth pinion (4.44-1). My plan is to use it with a T5
Thank you for posting this

With a ratio like that and the key way so close to the tooth valley, I can see that pinion splitting like a dropped egg!!

A "wow" from me too. Would give great gearing for a T pickup working in logging or construction, especially used with a Ruckstell or Warford.

Someone went to a lot of trouble designing this only to put the key-way in the worst possible place as Kerry pointed out.

Les, what is a T5?

a T5 is a modern transmission.

Mike is correct. I have cast some aluminum conversion adapters to facilitate the installation of various standard and automatic transmissions from the '60's-'80's to the T block (including Borg Warner T35 automatic and T4&5 manual, and Ford C3 & C4 automatic. A A4OD automatic should also be possible).
Definitely not for the "purists ". Potentially for the race car guys.
Another conversion is a late '60's Volvo 4 speed in place of a Warford. I might have that at Lincoln hill climb

I have an original Morton and Brett 9-tooth pinion gear that was originally raced in a model T Ford sprint car I previously owned for about 40 years. Take notice where the key way is located. Since the gear was well used I had an "experienced" machine shop "duplicate" it, which they did except for the key way. It was machined like the one in Don Lang's photo. Needless to say it broke almost immediately punching a nice hole in the differential housing.M and B 9-tooth pinion
