My rear has been leaking at the pinion and howling for a few summers now, so its ready to be replaced. I picked up a 3.08 posi in a 10 bolt housing, fully rebuilt, never ran. Turns out it was originally from a 62 nova, so internal are not as stout as a fullsize, but theoretically will bolt right in. Anyway, looking for advice. I'm only running a stockish 283, so I'm not worried about overpowering it.
So my options are:1) Use it as is2) Use it, but safeguard with Aubrey Bruneau style girdle caps3) Sell to a Nova or Acadian enthusiast
Thanks in advance!

I can only please one person a day, today is not your day!!! Tomorrow isn't looking good either. !!!!!!!! BLACKSTOCK Ont.
Doesn't the full size Chev/Pontiac pumpkin remove from the front of the rear axle housing in a '63 ? The Nova has the housing cover on the rear and as dualquadpete has said I don't think any of it will interchange. I would sell it and go to your local automotive supply and check out a new Motive Gear (Richmond) replacement Unit, you can get it with all the install pieces as well as the ring and pinion. I changed out a 3:08 last year to a 3:73 using the Motive replacement unit and install kit, no regrets!I looked up part numbers in my Motive Catalogue and used 1963 Chevrolet BEL AIR as a base, Ring & Pinion -3:08 G884308, 3:55 G884355, 3:70 G884370, Install Kit GM 8.41K
