Wouldn't cost you anything to try. If you are running pavement under USAC type rules a Halibrand is fine because the way the rules are written to avoid severe offset cars. I should have been a little more specific and I see Baue gave you a very good answer. Does that incorporate safety hubs as well? Again, just learn, thinking and enjoying. Gapinski Member Join Date:
Helical quick-change gears had been used in Sprint cars for years but many people thought this was not achievable on a streetcar.
We set up each street rear axle with proper ring and pinion gear patterns to keep the rear axle on the road for a long time. We back each racing rear axle with free replacement of broken cases for the first year. Are you perhaps female Banger? These Ford rear end assemblies utilized the spiral beveled hypoid designed ring and pinions. I just sold a jones midget rear it said jones qc on the left side just ahead of the quick change area on the lower rib. For further reference and searching on ebay, the Model A quickchanges are also known as Midget axles, so you need to avoid those as well. Early hot rodders embraced the Halibrand design and built their cars around the quick-change option.
