  • C3 Corvette Differential Crossmember Bolts?

    Bought a 1978 corvette this last year, and we've been going through it to make sure everything is mechanically sound. I'm checking out the rear end and I'm wondering how the differential is bolted to the crossmember. Is the differential threaded for the bolts coming through the crossmember, because I don't see any nuts english news capread holding the bolts?

    I keep looking for schematics of the rear end but I'm not seeing anything with enough detail to see if the differential is threaded or not.

    I don’t remember but if you don’t get a reply I’ll look at our assembly manual.
    There is a madness to my method!
