Rear end identification help
I have a 71 plymouth b body, thought i had an 8 3/4 rear end, but now i am not sure anymore.
i purchased an 8 3/4 rear end for the car, because i wanted to swap with a numerically larger gear. However, this is what i noticed:
On the rear end on my car, it seems almost as if the rear end and the axle housing are one. What i mean is that the rear end is longer, and the bolts to dismantle it aren't until after the axle housing, toward the rear of the car. the cover is also a very small bubble.
However, it seems that on the 8 3/4 that i purchased, the rear end is almost supposed to go straight up to the large cover, where the axle housing is connected to. I thought i had an 8 3/4 rear end. Do I? HELP
