Default parts pickup

Last week I went out in the scrub to a mates old farm, he has a collection of old fords ,and lots of ford ww2 trucks.
I picked up really nice set of 3.78 gears for our 33 spare rear,I stripped two rear ends there and the owner got a real nice gearset as well.
the A did a good job with lots of dirt road travel and 3 hrs on the hi way back fully loaded,no drama.
