  1. Ok, here's the question... To build up an 8.5" 10 Bolt or go on the search for a 12 Bolt? A buddy and I bought a 71 Skylark 2 Dr HT from an old couple in Chicago (original owners, etc...) and we're looking to do some light drag racing. It's got a straight 6 which we're pulling in favor of a 455 we got and that leaves us with the weak link...the rear end. It's got an 8.5 rear which from what I'm reading CAN be built to handle this motor and task, but I'm looking for folks with knowledge to pipe in here and either reassure me or smack me upside the head. We figure that getting a built 12 bolt will put us in the $1200 or so range...If we have a rear end guy in the area build our 10 bolt, it'll come in at $800 for a new posi unit, bearings, seals, labor, etc... Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks, Bob-
