Hi Carl,

I understand the concern you have. I am presently going through this with my 36. I have the car for a year and the babbitts let go. I found a local guy who does prewar engines and he has the engine now. Everyone from the club has told me that once the motors are redone with modern bearings and so on they are reliable. I also rode in one that was redone and the car is incredible. My car is a driver and had no squeaks or rattles, she rode straight as an arrow(No pun intended). My feeling is that of everyone else in the club do not ruin your car by going with a modern drivetrain. These are very rare cars you can only increase the value by leaving it original.
