Mike,
time to find another rear end. This one is toast. Time to start asking for help on this forum and AHexp.com and Mgexp.com for a rear end to fit aSpridget with quarter elliptic springs. Check eBay as well. Someone on one of those lists has a spare. Won’t be cheap to ship. On second thought this looks like it’s just the pumpkin that is fubar’d. I’ve got a spare 4.22 from Bugsy that i’m not using. I swapped mine out for a 3.9 pumpkin. And it’s already in a styrofoam molded shipping box. $150.00 plus shipping cost.
