    Hi,

    I have a 1982 chevy k20 with and unknown front axle.. its got 10 bolt cover (its not a corporate 10 bolt has onscure front cover!) and its not a dana 44 or dana 60... On the cast iron web off the center section is says "GM 5" and on the other side of the pumkin is (what i can make out) "G" or "6" 115 .. anyone have any clue as to what it is? i think i got the shaft when i bought it...


    if anyone can help that would be great

    thanks--greg

    what is an onscure front cover? If its not a 10 bolt its a d 44 only two axles that came in these trucks. I have heard of guys doing 12 bolt front ends but thats a custom peice so it will either be really nice or really bad. Also theres no point to doing it.

    [​IMG] Its not very good ill try to get a new photo .. But that cover is not round its more of an obscure round, not like a 10 bolt or dana 44 (has "GM 5" behind on the right lower housing web

    A 10 bolt cover is not perfectly round, it is slightly out of round.

    I think the word your thinking of is oblong. But, an oblong cover is rather obscure!

    Make sure you click the go advanced button, then scroll down and you'll see it. There is a dark heading that says additional options and it's just below that.

    Sorry i can't help you then. At any rate, i'm about 100% positive you have a 10 bolt axle. How about e-mail? Can you e-mail me the pic. You can find a link to my e-mail in my profile.
