    I rebuilt my 8.2" 10-bolt on my 70 with new gears and Yukon LSD. It has about 100 miles on it now. During hard braking there is a whir noise like there is a flat spot on a bearing. No other noise during cruise, coasting, accel or deccel. Here is a picture of the gear wear. This is my first diff...

    I've got a 79 nova, hasn't been on the road since '98 and last week first time driving it since spending 4 years rebuilding it. Was told it used to drag at a local 1/8 mile. Axle seal started leaking so I'm gonna replace bearings and seals and when I popped the cover off I found this clip in the...

    Hey everyone, I'm currently upgrading my 10 bolt 8.5 rear end with an eaton positraction and installing new gears. Since I have extra crush sleeves, I tried to use one during one of my mock setups to see how it works. After I set the pinion preload to 18 inch lbs, I pulled out the pinion gear...

    Hey guys. I have a 72 Nova with the stock 8.5 rear end and 2.73 gears. I am looking to upgrade from the one wheel wonder to an Eaton posi, 3.42 gears, and Moser 30 spline axles. Since I will be doing the rebuild myself, I am currently looking for parts. After checking out sites like Jegs and...

    Hello everyone, I purchased a 8.5" 10 bolt a while back with posi and 4:56 gears; the spider gears in the posi need to be replaced, there is a big chip in one of them. Everywhere I look it seems you can only buy spider gears for open rear ends only. This may sound like an ignorant question...

    I was wondering if anybody out there knows if you can take the 3rd member from a late 50's or early 60's full size passenger car and bolt up to a '63 Nova rearend housing ? My classic industries book show 5 lug mosier axles for 62-63 models and I thought it showed an auburn posi that would fut...

    I've got a 74 nova with a gm 10 bolt and the passenger side axle tube is leaking from the brake side. I pulled the wheel off and drum off and the axle is sticking out about an 1/8 of an inch for where it normally would be. I pulled off the differential cover and everything looked just fine in...

    I know that this subject has been covered but I have a rear end that doesn't match date codes shown on Novaresource web site. I just got what appears to be a 1978 Nova 10 Bolt. The Axle tube stamping is: 2TX G 80472. The 2TX decodes to 1978 Nova 3.08:1 Open; G is Detroit Gear; 8047 is not...
