I am going to put larger tires on my truck and I need to put in a new speedo gear. Does anyone know whether or not I will lose any tranny fluid when I pull out the old gear? Should I angle the truck so the fluid is on the other side of the tranny?

Also, what should I use for air pressure in the tires. I am running a 94 Ranger 2WD and the old tires were LT195/75R14 and 35psi. The new tires are LT235/75R15.

Thanks for the help.

You should only lose the few drops of tranny fluid that are on the gear itself.

wouldn't hurt to angle it, but generally no. i'm using the red gear speedo gear, makes the speedo read faster. i run 28(in town)-30(highway, economy) psi with a fiberglass canopy and a fair chunk of off-road gear/tools/spare tires, roughly around 400lbs. tire wear's looking pretty even. empty, i run about 25-26 psi. but it all depends on the tire too.
