  1. As you can see, these are the different gear sets. The original is stamped 41 10. Take 41 and divide it by 10. 4.10 gears likewise, the one I put in, is a 43 12. Take 43 and divide it by 12. 3.58 gears. Matt
  2. I removed the rear end and did the gear change in around 5 hours. I have a 47 Roadmaster convertible. Used the gears from a 54 Special I believe. Matt
  3. Happy Birthday Lamar! Glad you had a Buickful day! I make several runs a week with the 47’. Usually make the same route which takes an 1:15 a 1:30. Made another run Saturday with my brother in his 1940 LaSalle out to the BBQ joint. Hard to believe we work together and probably spend less time together as brothers than I see my sister who lives in Missouri. Has gotten much better since he bought his LaSalle this year.
  4. Have been out several times last couple of weeks. 50-70 mile runs just out and about and some with dinner. Found this little BBQ place the other night. Excellent food. Excellent prices. Sorry pictures are so dark Matt
  5. Got in a hurry and goofed mine up.
  6. Wife and I went out for a drive tonight. 50 miles round trip. Beautiful evening for a drive. Trees are starting to work i to the changing of the leaves.
  7. Took the 47’ out to an apple orchard today and picked sunflowers for the girls and apples to make some pies. These are quite a big deal nowadays. Corn mazes, live music, alchohol, food. Made for a nice couple hours with the family and daughters boyfriend got first ride in the car. Was a great day!
  8. Price drop to $5250.00 for AACA members. Would like to sell before it gets cold. Matt
  9. And you should. Such a nice car. Cannot wait to get together
  10. Highway is wonderful. I also noted, for those who experience vapor lock, that I was out in 90 deg weather and with higher hwy speeds and lower rpm’s, temp ran 10 deg lower. Ordered my new gear for the speedometer adjustment today from Northwest transmission in Ohio. Matt
  11. Or the sedan frame was swapped in because of an accident or old frame rusted away. Happened more than one might think
  12. Repaired it. Had a guy at work heat the piece up and tig weld it. Heated it up pretty good again after it was welded to take some temper out of the welded area. Ground it back to shape and sanded down the last grind marks and final fitting it around the disc that rides inside of it. Just hope this doesn't happen anymore, ever again. Not fun pulling all of that apart. Tedious. Matt
