    I have not consulted the JS yet on this one. The rearend on my early March of 28 chassis was as shown in your pic. Sold those housings to Doug Clayton. Still have another set back. The rearend for the May rdstr pu was the later rectangular style. If memory serves me correctly the change was in March of 28. Rod

            May 28 spring findings
            by TNGIZMO
            Probably well known by more experienced folks but I found this interesting.

            My may of 28 Tudor was a little droopy in the front. (Now from my understanding the car was “restored” in the 80s.) So I decided to re-arc the spring. When I was cleaning up the leaves I noticed that first of all there are 11 leaves and the fourth leaf didn’t have clipped corners and secondly I found script...

            60 day leeway
            by Jim Mason
            I know how i interpret the 60 day leeway in the standards.

            How do you interpret the statements early 28, thru april 28, a graphic used bop to april 28? keep in mind the graphic usually shows an overlap. Do the graphics already allow the 60 days or not?

            E28 = 1/01/28 to 4/30/28 part could be found up to 6/30/28

            Thru April 28 = from 01/01/28 to 4/30/28 part...

            Early 28 Weel Flange Depth
            by Rowdy
            Anyone have an early 28 wheel they could measure the flange depth of? Bought an early 28 front end and rear end today while on Junk Jaunt. Now to keep an eye out for early 28 wheels for day 2 and possibly day 3. Can not find my notes from years gone by and too tired to dig for them. Leaving very early in the morning for day 2 and will check back to see if anyone has one to measure. Thanks Rod
