The Jalopy Journal
Please tell more about the Meltdown drags in Washington next summer. I haven't heard anything about this and am interested.
30 years ago I'd throw a tent and bag in the back of my coupe to camp. Lately it's been in the delivery.

No good reason to do that. Just push it out the front like you would the pinion.
Wide 5 bolt pattern was 1936-39. The rest were 5.5 bolt circle. Factory open drive was 1942-47 1/2 ton pickup. All banjo rear ends. No banjo rear...
Most guys like 2500 or less.
The 1942-47 Ford 1/2 ton open drive rear end pinions are not splined. They are tapered and keyed like the axles. They came with all the regular...
I have a couple of project cars in inventory plus an older build I'm going to change the personality of. My theory has always been 1 car at a...
Yes. I reworked a 54 Pontiac grille and used silicon bronze. It chromed great.
A great combination!
I've seen the '41 axle tube in 24 5/8" and 25 1/2" lengths. Seems it must have been a transition year. A look in the "Green Bible" shows 32.85"...
1939-41 axles are 16 tooth and 32.85" long. 1942-48 axles are 16 tooth and 33.70" long.
Not off the top of my head. I've used a stock Model A spring on a '40 rear and it works great.
Is the rear end upside down in the picture? If it's not the hangers are. The arch of the hanger should be up.
You need to swap the housings side for side. You can't just rotate them. A Model A rear spring will fit just fine on those hangers.

Banjo housings taper. Here are the approximate dimensions in inches from big end to small end.
Great project John. You will want to figure more psi in the rear tires for Bonneville. Like 70 psi. That's what the inspectors recommended to us....
It's not a custom backing plate to fit the 9" Ford. It's their standard backing plate with the 9" pattern drilled in it. I'd get new axles instead...
'34-35 standards were 3 windows. '34 masters were 5 window.
Show us what you have.
1942-47 1/2 ton pickups had parallel leafs and open drive shafts. These were the only banjo rears like this.
But you know what's REALLY ghey? Bonneville chops and painted numbers on cars that couldn't find table salt, much less Bonneville.
Yes indeed they are all from Vettes. I just recently acquired a '62 327 with a RE stamp.
You cannot mix different ratio pinions with different ratio ring gears and expect a good result. 11-39 is 3.54. 9-34 is 3.78. 9-37 is 4.11. 3.78...
