Question

Why?

Camaro 12 bolts sell for a pretty penny - why not keep the one you have and get rebuilt?

You car does have a 12 bolt under it - doesn't it? if you look at the pumpkin from the back - you should see 2 bolts at the bottom (1 bolt dead center is a 10 bolt)

Car was hit in the back left tire and now has a 10-bolt in it. I thought about getting used one but worried about finding a reliable one.

Rick's First Generation Camaro has them used for sale, I think they all are rebuilt before sold. They have 12 bolt units with either drum or disc brakes. I see you are in Pinehurst, NC. That would only be a short trip to Athens, Ga to pick one up. That would save alot on shipping.

Last time I called Ricks about a 12 bolt they only had one and it was a 4:11. Yes, it was rebuilt and completly ready to go $1,200.00. For some reason I thought they would have a bunch to choose from. Not the case. Maybe they sell that quick.

If you want a new one, I'd check out Moser, http://www.moserengineering.com/mose...or/chevy12.htm
They now make their own housing with improvements over stock, including C-Clip elimination, but allowing use of stock style brakes.
Pricey, but...

I have checked with Moser the price is $2000 Rick's will cost $1600. Is Moser worth the money or should I just go with Rick's. Thanks for the advice.

why not just build up the 10 bolt they can- be built to hold up under some very serious hp. i have a friend who runs a 10 bolt in his drag car, the car goes 6.30s in the 1/8 on the bottle. moser sells some good parts for the 10 bolt, and i think it will be alot cheaper than buying a brand new 12 bolt.

If you got a 8.5 10bolt have a performance rebuild if it's a 8.2 10 bolt get either a 8.5 or a 12 bolt.

Now if your running an engine close to stock don't worry about it. How do you tell the 8.2 from the 8.5? The 8.2 has an inverted V on the cover. I believe the 8.5 has a smooth cover.
