    .3, sorry couldnt help it.

    8.2 is earlier 10 bolt 60's era, has a sideways "L" across cover, 8.5 is 70's and early 80's. 8.2 or 8.5 is ring gear diameter. carriers are not interchangeable, not sure on axles.

    I've got over 80,000 mi on my 8.5 ten bolt behind a BBC. I've run it hard on the street and at the drags.
