If I wanted to convert a 1973 Black 5000C to the gear ration of a 1973 Blue/Gray 5500C would I simply replace the 8701 pinion and 7072 main gear that came with the 5000C and replace them with a 4530 pinion and 4528 main gear from the 5500C?  I know years ago Abu had a kit for sale with these parts, but I'm just trying to figure out the part numbers to use.  Thanks in advance for any replies.

Allow me to rephrase my question...see the attached image that I found online.  I'm trying to identify the part numbers of the main gear and pinion gear that were included in this kit.
