What is a Final Drive & Differential Assembly? Basically, this is the last set of gears that will decrease the rpm and deliver the necessary rotational Torque (Tq) to the output drive shaft(s). Rj Link Int. has developed several Final Drive Assemblies that can be used in conjunction with regular operation drive applications. Most of these ratios are in the (2.7:1 – 4.5:1) range. The key to remember is that the output will never rotate as fast as the engine. This includes having an overdrive condition. The system needs both the final drive and the differential to work in conjunction.
Two of the most common systems:
