Description: As some here know, I turn the wrenches on my cars. This is another drive train up grade on the restoration of my 78 Corvette. I just finished replacing the original differential with a quality rebuilt unit from the Duntov Motor Company and here are a few pictures of the project for anyone to check out. Please note that the dates on some of the photos are incorrect.
