At least it's a Saginaw in '82, GM used the T-5 after it, IIRC. I don't know how it will hold up, the T-5 wouldn't have done well at all.

I'll have to look how big the rear-end is, was thinking about going posi anyway.
It's a 7.5". The only "good" part is it's a 3.42:1 ratio, which would be good, if not for the strength being lacking.
