testing me?

I called shop to repalce the ring and pinion in my 8.2 10 bolt rear, and the guy asked what size the ring gear bolts were, and how many. Now i'm kinda new at this, so without pulling the cover i did some research and found out the size of the bolts are 3/8", but i dont know how many bolt are in the ring gear. Does that question sound funny, or is it a normal question? Any input would be helpfull. thanks. Just another thing its a posi,if that matters,.

It sounds like he is trying to I.D. the rearend without seeing it. Judging by your screen name, do you have a 69' olds? If so, it probably has the heavier 8 1/2" rearend. B.O.P. started using it before chevy did because chevy was using the 12bolt in higher h.p. cars. I would just drive the car over to the guys shop, he should be able to tell which rearend you have if you are unsure.

Was your question how many bolts are in the ring gear? If so the number is ten if it is an 8.2 or an 8.5.

thanks

I know the name is misleading I have a 69 camaro, the guy hasent seen the car so thats probably what he was doing. Around here no-one really wants to do that kind of work, there's no speed shops or anything. He's just a local shop guy who says he can do it. Thanks for the replies.

The Ring gear is 8.2" in diameter and the number of bolts would be 10...you know "10 bolt".

I work in the parts buisness and the dude you talked to knew only what the computer toled him if all you needed was a price for a ritchmond gear it wouod be around $110

Just don't forget that GM axles arn't named by the # of ring gear bolts. Only on some of them do the # of ring gear bolts and the # of cover bolts match.

GM axles are named by the number of bolts holding on the cover.

FWIW I have a 14-bolt that only has 11 ring gear bolts because one of them is stripped
