***FOUND*** Elusive 9-bolt rear-end!!!

I know! You're skeptical right? This things so rare you've probably never even heard about it!!!

Well, it's either an ultra-rare, 9-bolt rear-end or,...I just unexpectedly found the cause of the grunge at the underside-rear of the car, grunge I first noticed while fixing that torsion bar in the other thread.

That is an 8.20" 10 bolt Spicer rear end. there are 9 bolt inspection covers but they are 7.50"-7.60" 10 bolt rear ends from Borg-Warner instead of Spicer. You didn't label the bolt on the top of the housing as 10.

aww dave, I didn't label #10 because there is no bolt in spot #10, and there hasn't been for what seems a long, long time, hence the oil grunge on everything in the back and the pattern it's in.
