ericnova72 That is a 7.5" 10-bolt rear, identified by the two casting "fangs" at 4:30 and 7:30 positions below the cover face. First introduced in the Vega but commonly used in the '76-78 Nova 6 cylinder cars, '78-up G-body(Monte Carlo, Malibu, Regal, Cutlass, Gran Prix, El Camino), '82-Up F-body(Camaro/Firebird) and the S-10 trucks.

Judging from the width I think you have a '76-78 Nova rear.

It isn't an 8.2" or 8.5" 10-bolt.

Here's progress pict's of the truck. Spent the weekend widening the box 7" to best fit fenders with the rear axle and to give the truck a lower look. Got most of the welds ground before the Daytona 500

GM Axel code - pict's

Here's pictures of the axle. It's 60 1/2" Wheel mount to wheel mount - chart indicates this is '68 & newer Nova. Brakes are drum, 9 1/2" X2". Looks to be a 6 cyl rear with 2.73 gears. I'd like to confirm year so I can order brake shoes & wheel cylinders. A light axle is OK for this car as it is being built as a cruiser - high reliability, low chance of overheating, etc. Thanks, Dale

big gear head If you can post a few pictures of it and get some measurements it would help a lot.

artsvettes Otherwise, I'm building a '25 T closed cab pickup, full fendered, 9" body channel. Should be a *****in' rod when done. I've been building rods since I was in high school in the early 70's. Good fun![/QUOTE]

Hi, new to this board. Need help with a GM axle code. From the passengers side tube the code is 7 FC 0 136. I haven't had any luck finding a site with this code listed. Any of you have a code list where it is on?? If so, what's it from? Looks like a mid-60's Nova or Camaro 10 bolt, but it's not listed on those sheets.

Otherwise, I'm building a '25 T closed cab pickup, full fendered, 9" body channel. Should be a *****in' rod when done. I've been building rods since I was in high school in the early 70's. Good fun!
