    If your just looking for an empty housing, I'm almost certain any housing from 69 up should work and swap your guts into it.

    tabs that locate the brake line junction would be different. Not a biggie, just a pointer.

    just make sure it has an inner axle seal, not a bronze bushing, and you'll be good

    inner axle seal

    Do the inner axle seals interchange with or replace the bronze bushing? What about the automatic hubs? Should I keep or get manuals?
