Here's a video of the Snake Eater blowing the stock 10-Bolt rear in front of the shop on a 1-2 shift....
The spiders had let go and tore up the inside of the carrier...
This was the 2nd 10-Bolt on the 5th rebuild...

Moser 12-bolt Muscle Pak rear-end unboxing
You know how people are always sharing their "unboxing" videos of stuff
like new computer hardware or new cameras? Well, I think it's about time to
share an unboxing of some awesome muscle-car parts! (Yes, I am that much of
a car-geek.) In this video I tear open the crate for my brand-new Moser
Engineering 12-bolt Muscle Pak rear end as soon as the UPS Freight driver
leaves my driveway.
If you're as big a car-geek as I am, you probably want to see some specs on
* New Moser 12-bolt Chevy-style housing (made in the U.S.A.)
* GM A-body OEM chassis-mounting provisions
* Seamless steel tubing (3" O.D., 1/4" wall)
* Wilwood forged Dynalite rear brakes with internal drum parking brakes
* Custom alloy 33-spline bolt-in axles
* 3.55:1 Pro/Street ring-and-pinion gears
(PS: I got so excited about opening the crate that I mis-stated how the
ring-and-pinion works in the video; it's 3.55 rotations of the DRIVESHAFT
for every 1 rotation of the axle. Sorry!)
* Detroit Truetrac helical-gear posi differential
* 1350 series pinion yoke
* New Timken bearings, studs, seals, heavy-duty retainer plates, housing
ends, and T-bolt kit
* New braided-stainless brake lines, clamps, and Lokar emergency brake
* Aluminum through-bolt-style girdle rear cover with drain plug
* Semi-gloss red powdercoated
* 1/2" x 20 x 1-1/2" (0.620" knurl) wheel studs
This goes into my 1968 Chevelle, where it replaces the 3.23:1 ratio,
non-posi, 10-bolt wearing stock drum brakes that's back there now. (Next
up: Unboxing the T-56 Magnum 6-speed Hurst transmission that'll send power
back to this bad boy....)

How to install or change or replace gears and bearings in a rear end or differential
Installation of carrier bearings, pinion bearings, ring and pinion and a
crush sleeve are covered in this video. The main tricks given in the video
are about the actual set up bearings. The rear end being worked on is a
8.5 inch gm 10 bolt out of a second generation f body. Tooth contact
pattern charts are available on the internet, do your own research.
2001 Formula Stock motor doing wheelie
Took my 2001 Formula to the track, its got an SS4000 converter, QA1
Suspension, and 3.73 gears. I broke two 10 bolts in 2 weeks, so I put a
Moser 12 bolt in it. Suspensions is set up amazing, and for a stock motor,
stock manifolds and stock cats, its running very well, and pulling the
tire(s?) about 5" for 8 ft or so.
750 HP Vs 12 Bolt
Testing our new set up at the track. LS2 403 with 200 shot of Nitrous. The rear did like it too much.
Enjoy the breakage.
