Re: OD power

It has been my understanding that the Model A was designed to run all day long at 45 mph with the engine turning over at a nominal 2000 rpm. With an overdrive you can increase the speed of the car...

Re: 1932 drive shaft

They can be used in a Model A. The 32 rear axle assembly they came out of is about 85% Model A. The carrier, spider gears, and axles are the same as a Model A.
