    So I was driving my 52 customline on the freeway and it started feeling funny... i get underneath the car only to find this...

    [​IMG]

    completely cracked the tail shaft housing on it...

    if anyone knows where i can find another one or has one they're trying to get rid of PLEASE let me know!

    i posted a thread in the wanted section of the classifieds... thought i'd try my luck on here as well...

    any help would be much appreciated!

    thanks in advance!!!

  2. I have a Borg-Warner T-86 with an R-10 overdrive unit on it. 26-spline input, I think. Something with lots of splines.

    It's here in NY. No idea on the condition of the overdrive, but the gears in the tranny look pretty good. I got it cheap, and I'll pass it on to you for what I paid, plus shipping. PM me if you're interested, I can probably find some photos.

    take the trans off and have the tailshaft welded back on but first find out why it cracked....

    i believe the drive shaft may be off balance and the pinion angle was too high... and i was driving it like that for a while.... i think it just finally gave out from all the stress...

    i dont think a weld will hold up for that long on the cast iron.
