Default Rockwell 4.63 gear ratio

Hi everyone, I purchased a 1980 FC35 about 5 years ago and have been fixing it up; however, the one thing I cannot find is a 4.63 rear differential. My cat was originally a 3208 NA and was changed over to a 3208T, but they didn't change the gear ratio. It tops out at 55mph and I was hoping to go a little faster. Can anyone help with this?

I had no problems getting 4.33 built here in seattle next day, little far for you. 1800 exchange they had many ratio's to chose from. I forget the name, if needed I can get it

I’m getting ready to re-gear as well. Feedback I’ve gotten is that 4.63, 4.56, and 4.33 are available in Michigan near me.

Took my FC to shop I deal with, specialists in HD truck trans and diffs. Spied the tag, told them I wanted a bolt in unit as I wanted to save my 4.88.
Planned on doing install in house, ran out of time and dropped the bus off by diff supplier. Mind you, they read the tag, sourced a carrier based on the tag numbers, WOULD NOT FIT. after two days of torture they screwed the new gears to my original carrier and completed the job. Lost track of the 4.88's but I don't care. Just glad they had all the fun. Do what you will, it was eye opening for me.
