  1. I have a basic question. How can you cite the same part number to fit a front and a rear? Aren't they different parts? (I may be mis-reading your post.) I might have an interest in fronts and / or rears to fit a '38 Special. What are your prices? Jeff
  2. I believe I have a core for you. Let me verify tonight. Jeff H.
  3. Yep, that's me. Would you like this steering column / box?
  4. I have a steering column that came out of my '38 Special. This is the left-over assembly after I went through a parts car steering column rebuild. Price: FREE (but, you have to get it from Dayton, OH) Condition: Well, it served me for about 20 years of happy touring. I did not like the condition of the pitman shaft knurl, which is why I pulled parts from the parts car column. Everything else was fine. I would rather not send this to the scrap yard! Jeff
  5. I have a torque tube, drive shaft, 4.40 differential, and axle shafts that came out of my '38 Special when I upgraded to a 3.9 ratio. Price: FREE (but, you have to get the parts from Dayton, OH) Condition: Well, it served me for about 20 years of happy touring. I will say the gear set is not perfect, but is serviceable. I would rather not send this to the scrap yard! Jeff
  6. I did a partial rebuild on my engine some years ago. Cleaned and re-used the existing rocker arm shafts and rockers. With this configuration, the oil squirted out at idle. Pretty messy during a valve adjustment! When I re-did the engine using a much nicer shaft and much better rockers, the oil just barely flows out of the rockers. I decided this was as it should be. Why? Because the oil has to flow around a portion of the annulus of the shaft OD and rocker ID before it gets to the outlet port. On my worn shaft, the wear was so bad that the rocker could wobble a bit on the shaft. With my newer parts, the fit is quite close - I can see how the flow is supposed to be minimal. Jeff
