Thanks for the Re: on the rearend. I have found one within driving distance for $75. Came off of a 3spd 6 that was converted to a 8. Is that asking for trouble? Yes, it is a manual. A retoration and a daily driver. Not really any noise while driving but when I brake and shift I get very loud, whole body(of the car) bang. Am I looking in the wrong place? Thanks Pat.
