Well, you didn't say what you are working on, so I'm assuming that this is a '71 Chevy truck, probably a 12 bolt. Next time please tell us what you are working on. The ONLY way to tell what is in it is to remove the cover and look inside. I'm sure that someone is going to say that you can jack it up and spin the wheels, but this is very unreliable. Just remove the cover and look inside.
