GM 10 Bolt 8.5inch Posi identification

Hey

I have this axle i'm going to use in my 49 Chevy 1/2ton truck.

Would like to know a little bit more info about it, as in what car it came from, what year and anything else I might need to know to have it rebuilt.

Does anyone do a kit that will give me new drums?

These are the numbers i've pulled off it 1251502 K227 GM49

Here's some pictures....

i couldnt find anything on the internet with the casting numbers you gave , However, it looks like an 8.5 10 bolt but you cant be sure unless you pull the pan and try a 9/16 wrench on the ring gear bolt. a 9/16 wrench wont fit on an 8.5 ring gear bolt. if it does, it's the less disireable 8.2. in ring gear.
Sorry i coud'nt help more.
