    This story makes the whole thing that more more interesting. I hope we can find more details on this quickchange.

    Trying to inject some hope into this thread check this beauty that I picked up a few years ago. It appears that Curt Waters modified the CAE pattern and made the ARC quickchange with the old mahogany. I later found the old ARC quickchange as well.

    This thread has sat idle to long. Photos of pinion gear I removed from this quickchange. Ron 004 (2).JPG 005 (2).JPG 005 (2).JPG

    C'mon now, don't tease us. Is this the pinion from the center in the original post?
    If so, looks like it must've been in a functioning rear end. Or, is it a broken piece that was used for mock-up?
    I do that all the time.
    If I counted correctly, 31 spline. Does that sound familiar?
    Anybody have access to a C5 Corvette pinion?

    This is in fact the pinion I removed from the CAE Quick Change I got from Dick Spadaro and subsequently sold to Craig. Craig also purchased the lower shaft. Another person purchased the pinion shaft. I did provide Craig with a picture of the pinion shaft which he posted here. No doubt that this was a fully functioning driven hard unit. Ron

    We ran a CAE sprint back in the late 50's, early 60's which also had a CAE QC. Was a very good car that was very competitive with a Kurtis or a Watson. All I remember is getting splashed with hot gear lube and using three layers of shop towels to handle the spur gears.

    I picked a 40 ford coupe in 07 in Texas and this CAE quick change and a early blown 671 392 Hemi came with it. I was told that the hemi was in a boat and a FED and the QC came out of an early Funny car. Im selling the quick change in order to build a shop. What should I expect to ask for it? Thank in advance for your input.
