FYI, the pinion gear on the Pantera is not pressed into place, it is screwed in as normal. I too thought it was a press fit, and promptly destroyed my first clutch bell while removing the pinion with a hammer and a drift pin.. Imagine my surprise when I succeeded, then found the threads...

Here's a video I recorded on doing a gear ratio swap on my big block Pantera. (aka the bottle rocket chaser)

Upgrading the Pantera gear ratio (6 min 55 sec)
