Re: 1936 Column Drop

I've never seen a kit available for a '36 column drop. From a cost standpoint you might be better off finding another complete column drop that's in better condition than what you have now.

Re: 39 banjo rear hub pitting?????

Third Generation Automotive (Michael Driskell) has those repair sleeves for sale on ebay at a good price. You could probably call him directly and place an order rather than going thru ebay.
