    The 12 bolt (1310) to 14 bolt (1350) is Napa number 348
    The 10 bolt (1330) to 14 bolt (1350) is Napa number 447

    hope this helps

    I was never able to find anybody besides NAPA who sells the conversion joints. I wanted a lifetime warranty, but they offer only 1 year. Well, actually, I wanted a Spicer, but they don't make conversion joints.

    Sorry, Spicer does do conversion joints /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif
    I have 2 of them. I have the # written on the wall behind the work bench but am too lazy to go look.
