Hi everyone new member with a question?
I have a recent car project and it has this rear installed it has no drums on it and needs replacement brakes and wheel clys.
when tried to identify it. I was told it came out of a gto 1965. So I looked up replacement brakes and parts ordered everything but all the parts are to small.

Maybe someone can help me out with decoding or
Bicycle part Auto part Insect Metal Rim
Sky Grey Tints and shades Grass Pattern
Automotive tire Automotive design Tire Grey Motor vehicle
Brown Wood Road surface Asphalt Artifact
Hood Automotive lighting Wheel Bumper Motor vehicle
reconizing what I have. On the ring gear it says 41-16 GM 375 BH1 Any help thanks again.

you may have a
10 Bolt Cover/ 12 bolt Ring 8.875 & 8.75 Full Size Car
It has leaf springs the rear is in a 1951 chevy truck that the person cut off all the mounting except the upper ears and welded leaf spring lowering kit and mounting bracket. The inside of the gears looked good and being its 2:56 gears it should do well on the highway. I was just trying to find out the correct info on the rear so I could order the correct brakes and drums thanks for the help.

I would go with a big body car Catalina or similar not sure if the Catalina had leaf springs though
They would have had coil springs.

Read this article with the links as it seems that they did make a 10-bolt housing with the 12-bolt ring/pinion gear and 5x5 lug pattern. I posted one of the links from the article.
