Okay an update

I got up this morning and was on a mission to find the noise that made me call a rollback.

Jacked up her rear end and put on jack stands, then pulled off wheels after spinning them in neutral... No noise, so I crawled under her with a few pry bars and u-joints checked out good

So I pulled diff cover (8.5 dia 10 bolt) fluid looked good, no metal and no chunks, and back lash felt good

Rotated assembly

No missing ring gear bolts, and no broken teeth, so I pulled carrier pin and spider gears, no cracks and not broken, everything spun good

So I pushed axles in and pulled c-clips and side gears, all good and axle bearings were good

So next was carrier, bolts out and a rag stuffed into pinion gear and a pry bar carrier out and bearings/races looked good

No pinion movement front to back....

Very weird at this point...a loud banging that was very loud and unnerving... Called the wife out to talk through the parts as I reassembled the rear end

I was like WTF? I felt and heard the noise...I was under her fixing gear shifter when I noticed the the washer welded onto the drive shaft for balance was whiney and ground up...less than .020 clearance (a small paper clip wouldn't fit)

So knowing how much a rear end can move while flexing etc....I grabbed cut off wheel on plunged up a 3/16 from edge and had almost 1/4 inch clearance....we test drove to town and twisted her pretty good...NO noise...so that is fixed

Next leaks and stuff

25 years and 3000 miles on new speedometer we installed

C-ya'll

so I wanted some tunes (these are low $$ parts...it will be listened to maybe 40 hrs a year

so this looked bad and so none 1930"s



stopped at local "antique store" and saw this


brought it home

test fit

marked and cut


another test fit (had to leave wood for hinges)

Just for the record...just a year or so before that Chevy was built...you could still buy a .45 cal Thompson through your friendly neighborhood hardware store.
