Re: Where to buy 21 stud repro alu heads

I just want them to work.

Re: Rear End- Is it worth saving ?

Model A I think by wishbones. Looks like it was a kit, hardware may be repurposed somewhere. Maybe a bench top stand to use when rebuilding a banjo rear end.

Re: 1936 Ford Pickup - New Engine and transmission

Clearly the “36” needs saved so what parts are left? If so you can get a Tbucket kit for 1/4 of the value and be just as happy with it.
