I found a 12 bolt out of a 1972 Monte Carlo and am going to put it in my 1969 chevelle, The question I have is this, it has 2.73 gears in it and I want to go to 4.56 Richmond Pro gears, I want to run a full spool also, will the spool and gears fit in this differential with out a spacer? Thanks for any help. Bill.

Can you run a full spool without "C" clip eliminators?

You meant a full spool right? Not a minispool?

No I think you canīt.

That's what I thought.

I am going to use c-clip eliminators and moser axles. A mini spool would work with c clip axles. Thanks. Bill napa219
