Hello, Bonjour, and Good Afternoon,


Day 6 I thought you would be tired of looking at my car's rear end.


Picture taken in Nice, France on Corvette Vagabond 's European Tour.
Well I found the problem. Failed bearing of pinion gear or Posi Unit its self. The pinion gear was able to move forward hitting Posi causing damage and pieces breaking off.


The fact that I was only going 10 mph saved my car from extensive damage had it let go at 70 mph. Nothing left to do but replace the unit. I will be looking to put a 3:36 in instead of the current 3:70 which is more inline with my high speed driving on highways in the US and Europe.


Thanks for coming along. I will keep you posted on further work on car as I put it back together.


Talked with Gary Ramadie, looks like I need a donor rear end.

If you have and don't need that rear end that is in the corner of the garage , send me a PM

Any GM / Corvette rear 71-79 3:08 to 3:70 ratio in OK to Good shape.

Thanks


Jack
