Michael:

There's a used one on eBay Motors right now for $400

Or, if you prefer, Moss UK will sell you a new ring and pinion set for about $450 plus shipping (shipping isn't too bad....I just bought some stuff from them)

Is the 3.9 ratio standard on a Spridget?

Eric--

Thanks and I will contact him. The 3.9 diff was standard in the later cars--I don't know whether the change point was when rubber bumpers came into fashion but they all should have that ratio unless changed or non-standard.
