1974 Chevrolet Camaro 5.7L (H)

I have a customer with a restored 74 Camaro. The rear axle tubes are leaking and I am looking for a replacement diff assembly. This has a disc brake conversion. Does anyone have a resource for a differential without the brake hardware? I am finding complete kits with conversions, but I do not need that. This has a 3.08 Gear Ratio.

Typically the tubes leak at the housing. You can have the tubes welded to the cast housing and cut out and reweld the plug welds and should fix the issue; unless the housing is BENT​.​TYPICALLY cheaper and functional.

If the only issue is leaking tubes they can be welded or epoxied using marinetex or JB weld. I have successfully epoxied otherwise good axle housings with no problems. How much money does the customer want to spend?

Hi Paul, I would work with what you have if you can. I prefer Nickle welding rod for these situations. Epoxy is just a temporary method. Brazing is another option. Back in my drag racing days we use to repair these without issues. The trouble with finding another rear unit is going through a complete setup, it is not a simple gear swap situation.

Dynatrac or Currie enterprises make very well done axle assemblies.
