It's been a while so maybe someone else is better able to answer but my memory is that it needs a spread rear end. Reshuffling the pacers would result in a bad dish situation..... I think at the time is was 125-6 (6 speed or ultra 7) and you needed to go to 130? Or was it 120 (five speed) to 125 (equal to the new-at-that-time 6 spd. standard, but not 6 but 5 cogs)?
