what are the diffrences between 10 bolts??

ok excluding the style of suspension, and lengths of the rearends,
whats the diffrence bewteen a 8.5" ring gear c-clip to the one retained by bearings?

also, what carriers are for what gears in the said rearend?

i just installed a 10 bolt out of a 72 chevelle into my 68 tempest. to find a really odd glitch. the u-joint retainers, on the pinion yoke were not normal GM size.
after going throu a bunch of my stuff and then the neighbors 4 x 4 stuff. i found a set of retainers that work off of a dana 70 HD!

ive never encountered this problem in the 8 or so rearends ive swapped!
can anyone shead any liught on this?
