Help ID 8" Ford rear ends.

I am 77 years old in good health and brand new to this method of communicating. I came close to closure within the last couple of years and in a wheel chair. Neurosurgery put me back to normal overnight. Hydrocephalus, too much water on the Brain was the problem. I had gotten rid of all my toys and when I got back to normal, I returned to my favorite interest==Street Rod projects. I bought a running fiberglass 1933 Ford 3 window coupe. Had the miss-installed differential replaced by a very good hot rod shop near here. I am trying to find out more about 8" Ford rear ends.

A very fitting name you have chosen for yourself.

Being able to do what we WANT to do is something many of us take for granted. Having a second chance ... priceless.

Good on ya!

I can't help on the 8" Ford rear, but glad you're doing well now. Ventricular shunt procedure? I was in health care for 36 years, X-Ray/C.A.T. Tech, and I've seen hydrocephalus so bad I could'nt believe someone could still be alive; then after the shunt they, and their brain, are almost normal in appearance. Good luck, and welcome back to this hobby.

It is amazing what can be done in modern medicine. People who witnessed my declining health now find it hard to believe the change. I have a hard time believing it myself. I only wish it could have been diagnosed sooner.

Halibrand center caps.

I went to their site and saw the center caps. Could not find a method to order them so I sent an email to "SALES" asking how to obtain them.

Thanks for your lead.
