Casting Number for '73 8.25 sure-grip ?


I am trying to upgrade my '69 Charger 8.25 with a limited slip w/ 3.55's. I purchased a limited slip carrier from e-Bay 27 spline casting # 18-05-039-0901.
I can hardly make out the last digit - "1". I read that if the last digit is a "3", it will not work in an 8.25 without a custom made 7mm spacer for the Ring gear, and custom made longer left hand thread bolts. I cannot find any info about a Sure Grip with the casting # above. Any thoughts? (Besides scraping my Small Block drive train) Although, if I had the $$ I would make my car an RT Clone.

Imo, you're better off not wasting your money on the 8 1/4 and just throw an 8 3/4 under it. The 'B' body rears are not that hard to find and shouldn't be over 200 bucks (depending on gear ratio, SureGrip etc) drum to drum....
