1967 Chevrolet Camaro - 8.2" 10 bolt rear axle tear down
This video shows the disassembly procedure for an 8.2" 10 bolt rear axle.
This procedure is the same for both 10 and 12 bolt Chevrolet rear axle
assemblies. I am rebuilding this axle so that I can replace the factory
3.08:1 open differential unit with a 3.55:1 posi-traction differential
unit. The things not shown on this video include the removal of pinion
bearing races and the axle seals and bearings. The pinion races were
removed with the assistance of an extra long brass drift and a dead blow
hammer. The seals were removed with a seal puller. The entire diassembly
process took about 1 hr. The axle will now be throughly cleaned and the
housing will be checked for cracks and other abnormalities prior to
painting and reassembly. Stay tuned and thanks for watching!
Ring and Pinion Gear Set Which is Best for your Vehicle | Summit Racing Quick Flicks
This installment of Summit Racing Quick Flicks will help you determine
which ring gear set is best for your vehicle. Acceleration and your cruise
RPM can be affected if you select the wrong ring gear and pinion gear for
your vehicle type. The way to determine which ring and pinion is installed
on your vehicle is by counting the number of ring gear teeth, then dividing
that by the number of pinion gear teeth. There are five basic aspects to a
vehicle that help you determine which ratio is right for your car: Tire
size, cam profile, torque converter selection, cruise RPM and vehicle use.
Do you have a daily driver, street/strip car, or a drag race car? Get the
correct ring gear set for your specific car. To shop Summit Racing's ring

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.
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.
