Joe, I got same thing from a guy Hot Rodding a 41 chevy. Can't give away the
drivetrain parts, probably going to junk. No one wants to build a trailer or
nothing with rear-end. If it was truck stuff, Yeah. Car trans and b'house
are different than trucks and won't inter change unless you take whole
system. Good Luck trying to get rid of stuff.
