    rearend

    i am not sure you all get what i am saying. all i want to know is, can i put the pumpkin and the axles in the early housing. i know i have to cut and respline the axles. it's just a matter of measuring the early ones and cut the newer ones the same. what is this thrust block? if i use the same...

    push button trans

    a friend of mine has a '58 hemi in a '56 ford truck and he asked me if you can change it to a floor shift. the trans is the one that came with the hemi. i kind of remember somewhere i heard that you can but i am old so who knows. i suppose he could change the trans to a late model 727 right?

    1963 belvedere 8 3/4 rear tapered axle

    i am wanting to change the rear to a later model type and i heard that i can just change the third member and the axles to the later style. are the axle bearings the same size in both housing? i know i have to cut and respline the axles. the whole reason for this is because i don't want to cut...
