    Picked up my 14 Bolt FF yesterday. The # on the ring is 397733410411172. Does anybody know what gear ratio it has by this #. Thanks

    It's 10/41 for the pinion/ring gear teeth,
    and 11/72 for November/72, at least that's what I think he's pointing out. So if it was built in 11/72 it would be a 1973 model.
