    Hello Folks,

    Just got ahold of a 14bolt 3.73 today. First time laying eyes on one but man what a difference. All redone plus every thing I would need if I wanted to make it 10inch brakes. Here is what I need...

    - any drawings, specs, instructions, that i could use to assemble the hubs and brakes
    -also any one in the bay area recomend a place(SHOP) that could weld on new shock mounts and possible spring perches

    Thanks Quetzal

    Ive got a 14 bolt 3.73 locker 10.5" corporate also, from a 76 3/4 I parted out. Ive been debating over whether to save it for the Blazer or not.
    But finding a 3/4 ton 3.73 front axle to match, hmm.
    Would be good to use the 73-up style u bolts, too.
    Should be able to move the spring plates where they need to be, and use all the 73-up stuff.
    Dunno about shocks, hmmm.
    Maybe modify where they bolt up to the frame..

    '72 K-5 4x4, CST, 3.07, 4 speed, NP 205, 31' x 10.5", Olive green and primer, rusted out, rice smasher!

    Quetzal, check with California Differential in Milpitas. Also check with G-F Automotive in South San Francisco. You might want to try Frey Racing in Milpitas, but they mostly work on race cars, so they might be booked up and expensive.

    Thanks, Lico
