Swapping Rear Ends

Just got all (ok, most) of the stuff gathered up to swap the rear end in the ’37. I decided to swap the rear end with an 8″ that I have, with 2.79:1 gears, to get lower highway RPMs. The Columbia rear end that came in the car is super cool, but would be better used in a different vehicle.

I ordered a TCI parallel leaf spring setup from Speedway, and have begun cleaning up the 8″. Gotta drop off an axle at O’Reilly, to get a new bearing pressed on.

I am going to try and get started on the swap project tonight. Will try and snap some pic’s along the way.
