|BuzzLOL||. Sears Allstate scooters made by Piaggio of Italy... motorcycles by Puch of Germany(?)... biggest motorcycle was a 175cc or 250cc w/ twingle engine... 2 cylinders with one piston... oval shaped... two rods... about as tricky to make as a 3 bbl. Holley carb...|

. They also sold mopeds and motorscooters and houses...
. Turboniques using a variation of the old 1930-40's Ford truck banjo style rear centersections with axle tubes that bolt onto the sides of it...

I figure you are correct, you likely couldn't put it on any type of stock axle housing...I never studied it that far.
As far as a new trivia question..
Sears once sold cars from their store showrooms,.... What were they called, what company made them, and what other name were they more commonly known by??
EDIT: I should have searched before I asked, you guy's have already tackled this one.
someone else got a good question??

. Also a Turbonique 'Self-powered Supercharger'... officially known as Auxillary Power Supercharger. Liguid-fueled gas turbine spun the centrifugal supercharger at the flip of a dash mounted switch:
. "Testing took a 1963 409 from 405 HP up to 835 HP"
. A 1,980 HP Turbonique jet 'thrust' engine cost $199... sometimes TWO were put on back of a Go-kart...!

|BuzzLOL||. That's part of the spec.'s... not the differential housing, just the differential...|

|BuzzLOL||. You could use the differential and ring gear from your 3/4 ton truck rearend with this turbine...|
