1971 Camaro Diff ID
Hi all,
1971 Camaro base model. 10 bolt diff. I can not identify the diff. Has a number on the rear N then below 1285542. Passengers side stamp GO26 2 or G026 2. I have tried the internet but can not dial in on the right info.

What diff....what ratio? Does anyone have any ideas?

'71 Camaro would have the 8.5 10 bolt if it hasn't been changed. I can't find a GO code for the Camaro.

Cheers ...The code seem a little unusual. Can not find any reference to the numbers

I know it's a pain, but pop the cover and count the teeth.
Only way to be sure of the ratio.

Thanks for the info. Sorry totaly new to diff I count the teeth. What does this tell me?

Count the teeth on the ring gear and the pinion gear. Divide the number on the ring gear by the number on the pinion gear and that is your ratio. 41/11=3.73...

Thanks easy when you know how...Cheers

If you have trouble counting the pinion gear,look at the side of the ring gear.Most of them have the two numbers stamped on the edge like 41-11

Hi thanks. I have not pulled the cover yet... hope to take a look this weekend. Thanks again cheers

Reach in and wipe the pinion gear clean enough to put a mark on one tooth with a white crayon. Then turn it and count from your mark. Same for the ring gear.
