Just picked up another 10 housings from the powder-coater. Lets’s get at it.
Pitter patter let's get at 'er!!
Some sexy rears!
Are them in your living room? Ha
Haha, I was going to ask the same thing as I see some toys and what appears to be a couch!
Yes. They are in my house. Actually my Florida room,which we don’t use this time of year since it is cold now,but a great place for me. Just turn the heat on a little,and I’m good. Leave the TV off. No distractions.
are they all wide width? 8.5"?
They only come in one width... lol 71 72 then in 73-77 they got wider still another 1" and all the mounting points are totally changed.
I have a set of 30 spline 1/2" narrower Moser axles and I use to narrow the rears for 64 65 rears. So I still have a set of them on the shelf. 29.25" long axles.
This is the wider width that came under 66-72 Buick,Olds,Pontiac A-bodies,and 68-72 Chevy A-bodies.
What car do you have?
There is no NARROW 10 bolt 8.5... ?? Jim
Correct. I was referring to the width of the 71-72 8.5”. It is the same width as the 66-72 BOP rears and 68-72 Chevy rears. Sorry for the confusion.
Hey Brian- do you know the width of the rear in my 66?
Your big car?
63-64 " total width depends on what the axle shafts lengths are add the 2 axles and then put another .800 to 1" for center separation between the axles.
A body is 60" 64- 65 early and 61" later 66-72
He has a 66 Olds full-size.
Yep... 63 - 64" Jim
They were all wide by this time. 57 58 59 were the narrow rears.... 1960 - 1976 all were in the same length area. WIDE! like A TRUCK...LOL
AXLES WERE FROM 31.5- 32" LONG
