Was the od unit bolted to the trans? Or was it a separate unit. My concern, with a trans mounted unit is weight. You still got that drum brake setup hanging off there. DJ
The older/shorter motorhome don't have a drive train drum brake, they have a cable e-brake to the rear drums, so although the gear vendors replaces the tail housing weight is not a consideration.
In terms of mileage, as you would expect it has about 25% higher ratio, and you get an extra 25% mileage but if you are only getting 8mpg now you will only get 10mpg after the install. I only have the 350 small block so was getting around 11mpg before and get 14-15mp(UK)g now.
