An 82 year old carb mechanic asked me how fast had I ran my Hudson this morning. I told him I hadn't driven it over 60 to 65 mph as I was still trying to work out the bugs. Just for the hell of it, when I was about a mile from home, I put "the pedal to the medal" and the car accelerated accordingly. About a 100 yards from my street, I heard a loud bang from the rear of the car and it immediately started vibrating violently as if the clutch was disengaged. I was able to coast home without too much trouble. I haven't had a chance to jack it up to see what may have caused that noise because I thought something had fallen off the car and immediately went back to see if I could find what it was that had fallen off. I couldn't find anything. It seems like I read that someone on this forum had a similar occurrence and it had something to do with the rear axle. Any ideas fellas?
