Identy question

About two months ago I bought a "used" rear end out of a 1975 El Camino. I put it in my 1976 GMC Sprint. Everything bolted up great. The axles do not have the "C" clips to hold them in the housing. This housing has tappered bearings at all of the bearing positions. From the axles to the pinion everything. So here is my question, I want to replace the pinion bearings, front seal and crush sleeve,BUT I don't want to have the truck apart for days waiting for parts. Where do I look on the housing for a part number so the parts house can order the correct parts? This way I can just pull it apart and install the new parts and be back on the road in one day.
Thanks for your help and I will keep looking for your posts.

Look on the the forward face of the passenger side axle over the middle third of the length and tell us if you find any numbers.
