  3. Control C (copy) & Control V (paste) works for me. The same as any other site/program https://www.hemmings.com/blog/2018/10/14/hemmings-find-of-the-day-1968-citroen-hy/
  4. Yes for a r&p from 1938 series 60. But hard to get. For other gear sets need to do welding & machining. Some gear sets from the early 1950's have a higher (faster) ratio For more information their are a lot of articles on the old http://www.1937and1938buicks.com/The-Torque-Tube/The-Torque-Tube.htm Their are many threads on this topic in the AACA forum, like https://forums.aaca.org/topic/147695-high-speed-gears-for-1937-etc/ https://forums.aaca.org/topic/250431-1937-buick-rear-end-swap/ https://forums.aaca.org/topic/262259-rear-end-gear-swap/
  5. In the last 65 years anything could have happened. Even as a Caddy, at some time in the past they just old used cars, with little value or a collectible car.
  6. Also ask in --->https://forums.aaca.org/forum/32-oldsmobile-buysell/
  7. Worth checking the ratio before committing to too much work I think the drive shaft has a pin through pinion shaft (but may be wrong on that)
  8. Swapping the torque tube can be hard work. The length of the torque tube can vary year to year Some information here. https://forums.aaca.org/topic/318873-for-sale-54-and-55-differentials/
  9. Frank Bouchal Welcome to the forum These jump seats are likely to be the same as used on Buick 1939 & 1940 46C Special & 66C Century convertibles. And on Old's And we like photos!
  10. Whippet was also a brand of car (Willys) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willys https://www.shannons.com.au/auctions/2010-shannons-motorclassica-collector-vehicle-auction/U967443AWESDDLQA/ https://www.shannons.com.au/auctions/2011-shannons-sydney-summer-classic-auction/YF3C669UWMSCEX11/ === I do not think the tractor is steamer. Samson? International? Other?
