Hi,
One more question on this rear end deal. If I pick up the limited slip unit for an 8 inch housing, can I just bolt it in to my open unit and convert it?

yes, but its not that easy. You have to set gear lash. Its time consuming, but can be done.

gear lash?

You know of a place or book that I could find this procedure? I am willing to try anything.

Most speed shops have install instructions and kits. I wouldnt re-use the crush sleeves (not worth it in my opinion), or try Randy's ring and pinion or any other rear end place. Ive only done one and it was at school on a tester dummy long time ago, and never checked to see if it worked, but the gear pattern was good, and thats all I did.
