    so will this combo work? a buddy of mine just blew up his gov-lock so while we were tearing down his axle to make the swap, I was wondering why a mini-spool wouldn't fit in place of the side gears and spiders in the gov-lock case.

    if anyone has tried this combo successfully, you can bet my "no"-lock will be ripped out of that case within a week in favor of a mini-spool!

    Not sure for 10 & 12 bolts, but they will not work for 14 bolts. Gov Loc 14 has 3 pins for the spiders. An open 14 has 4.
