Re: Need help Identifying Make of Overdrive

That unit was built by Lloyd Young of Winchester, Ohio. He was known as "Mr. Overdrive". Unfortunately, he passed away in 2017 at 87 years old. His o/d conversion was one of the best that I've seen.

Re: Fan oil

You posted this one on the "greasing" thread a few days ago. Isn't this one a '40? It doesn't have a greasable fan hub on it.

Re: 6V generator

I would contact the seller first and discuss your concerns. I don't know the terms of your sale but most sellers won't take back an electrical item if it has been used.

Re: On the horn now

a process from the thirties or forties that used

Re: Orange/LA county recommendation for Diff. Rebuild

I would think seriously about replacing that axle. More than likely
it suffered some unusual stresses at some point which eventually
resulted in that failure. NOS or good used ones are still around.
