I'm thrilled! After 3 years of searching the wreckers, I finally found one at a local U-pull-it, and only paid $78 for it. Seems to be in great condition, but it's 3.64:1 instead of the 3.45:1 that I have, so I'm going to swap the ring and pinion and replace the bearings and seals while I'm in there.

I'm going to reread Ray's article a couple of dozen times before I do anything, but is there something else I should know that might not be in Ray's writeup?

yeah locktite the ring bolts, they have a habit of loosening when you beat on it. 3:64 is a good ratio I wouldn't change it IMO. I think I have some extra brand new clutch disks if you are interested.

Thanks, I'll remember the locktite. My friend's trying to get me to keep the 3.64 as well, but I find I run out of gears too quickly as it is. If I were going to drag this car I would keep the 3.64.

Thanks for the offer of the clutches but I don't think I'll need them. This diff is so tight that originally thought that someone had welded it. I can't spin the sides independently by hand. It came out of an automatic so I don't think it saw much abuse.
