Re: How to Tell if Rear Axle Bearings are Worn
The '73 to '77 Olds Buick and Pontiac 8.5 might have had the bolt in axles. I haven't built many of these years. I have a few of the Chevy 8.5 rear ends from these years, but they have c clip axles in them. I see that you are into dirt track racing, so you have probebly seen more of these than I have.
