    Noticed this while assembling my doubler. Apparently I have a rare NP195 with a 2.05 Ratio.... ha

    It's New Process screwing up the stamping and swapping the ratio with the model number.

    I keep trying to get away from this thread but I can't stop staring.

    I've seen a lot of tags like that before. Its basically an error wherever they did the stampings on them at whatever factory the tags were made from.

    The model number is actually the ratio and the ratio is actually the model number. The number are switched around. Honest mistake since I've seen quite a few of them before.

    shouldn't have made a stinger yet, but I gave the project to a kid as busy work and he got hurt while doing it :surepal: so I just went ahead and finished the fitting.

    Nah, that's a 60, but most "less informed" people (read: dumbasses :haha:) think axles are referred to by the number of bolts holding on the diff cover.

    He was just joking.
