    The universally acknowledged guru of both is Tom Endy of California.
    He has done countless trannies and rear ends. He has been generous enough to do stellar write-ups loaded with pix and they are on this website, the Santa Anitas As

        by Jordan
        I recently spent 3 weeks rewiring my "new" 1930 Town Sedan name Jethro (if you saw pictures, you'd understand the name). Jethro is pretty modified in the sense that it doesn't have a Model A engine, but it has a 39 transmission and a Model A rear end, hydraulic brakes, A/C, radio, CB Radio, ETC. ETC.

        It took a very long time to try to wire everything while making it look like...

        Rear end project, (More)
        by Terry, NJ
        Well, I finally finished the "rear gear" project over the week end. It was hard to get done between the extensive tree damage, a bad tenant and several other distractions. I was driving the car in the driveway yesterday. It was quiet, smooth and quick. To those who don't remember, I put in a set of 3.54 gears to replace the old 3.78 gears that were totally shot. It was a bad pinion bearing...

        Transmission Ratios Out of Sync
        by Tom Wesenberg
        I've seen transmission ratios posted where the 1st and 2nd gear ratios include the rear end, but then 3rd does not, and lists it as 1:1. This can be confusing when they don't use the rear end with all 3 speeds, or better yet, forget the rear end ratio, since at least 5 ratios are available. Here's an example of what I've seen in books.

        High-1:1 (100%)
        2nd-6.89:1 (53.8%)
        Low-8.75:1...

        Early 28 rear end
        by Manager
        I bought complete front and rear ends not needed by a hot rodder. It's all in good condition and I have pulled the front end apart, got the bits I needed and went to start on the rear end. My shackle holes are very worn in my bells. Plan was as the car this all came out off was that good and everything looked in that good shape to just put the complete rear in and keep the current one for spares....

        Results! (Rear end project)
        by Terry, NJ
        I Tightened up the wishbone nuts and cured the "Death Wobble" problem. I checked the lights and they were ok. So why not take a little ride? I drove over to Ron's, about 3 1/2 - 4 miles away, with a pretty steep hill (Down hill to, up hill back). I got on the concrete slab and started measuring temperature immediately, ambient temp. about 70 deg. Rear end 78 - 82 deg, Top of radiator 170,...
