Default little wanted tech fact.

I walked by the bare clutch shaft of a 1934 Dodge Brothers truck transmission quite a few times before it struck me how similar the splines looked to a forties or fifties Ford car spline. I grabbed the nearest '51 Ford clutch friction disc and man-handled it on the Dodge shaft. It slid right on.
Some of you may not need this information right away.

You're right Mac, I won't need that information right away.

That's neat though, thanks for sharing!

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.
