    I've got a 10 bolt out of an 82 S10. It's small. Do I have to worry about breaking it? I don't really plan on racing this car but I do want to be able to beat on it some and not worry about it. Anyone put a posi in one? Tell me your experience please.

    Raidmagic have we met? That handle sounds very familiar to me. Did you buy a bucket near Atlanta Ga.?4

    I have a 10 bolt open rear end out of a 68 Nova. Never had a problem but then I just have a rather mild 283.

    Yes!! I bought my last bucket from you. After completely redoing the car, new body and everything like an idiot I sold it. I have missed it ever since so I am building a new one.

    I, too, am using an open 10 bolt out of a 72 Camaro (3.08 gearset). No problems with my mild 350 (est 300+ HP).

    When I first logged back on this site looking to do another I saw your screen name and thought you were who I bought it from. I saw your location though and figured I had the wrong guy.

    That new one looks serious. Good luck with the build.
