The spiders had let go and tore up the inside of the carrier...
This was the 2nd 10-Bolt on the 5th rebuild...

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.

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....)

240SX vs R/C truck
Here's a little grudge match between a couple of our Detail guys at the
Dez's Traxxas jato RC Truck kicks the crap out of Juan's Nissan 240sx, but
not before running into a brick wall to avoid traffic!!
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!
