Hi,
I need to buy a replacement ring and pinion gear for my '71 Nova. It still has the original rearend, but I'm not sure if it's an 8.2 or an 8.5. I'm thinking it's an 8.5, but I've lost the information I used to have to tell for sure. Can anyone help me out? I'd like to order my 3.55's ASAP. :D

As long as its the original rearend that came in the car it is the 8.2 10 bolt. The 72' and up Nova's got the 8.5 10 bolt.

Otay, I need help identifying this rearend that came on my 74. According to info Ive found, its not the original rearend. The code is GB G262 1 and I cant find the GB code anywhere. All the 74s had Jx codes. Any help would be appreciated (even if its from you, Flyer :p ).
