chevy open rearend turned posi

I talked to a hotrod builder yesterday he said could shim a open differetial and make it a posi, has anyone heard of this ? I haven't. said he did it to a ford 8 in and it works great, no clicking or squeling around corners.

A very old trick but. NOT A POSI- just a tightly shimmed set of spider gears. Eventually they wear to clearance and your "posi" dissappears.
