most were I bet throw in the dumpster at the dealer when manaul hubs were installed. If ya want a pic I got one of the plates on my 82.Jason M said:Where can I get a set of LC drive plates?
I guess mini plates would work as well..
I know pretty much all LC's came from the factory with them. What happened? I have never really seen a set..
the caps are HOW much? I bet 80 series caps would work, they are under $10......I think.Jason M said:Dam,
$25 for the used drive plates.
Then almost $40 each for the caps that fit over them..
$120 ish for plates..
I can buy a whole axle for that..
I was thinking the same thing but how much slop is too much???texican said:Mace I bet if the 80 series will work you should be able to find some used ones, they have a problem with them wearing and clunking so they have to be replaced at 80k or so.

but to plates- I picked up a set for j tharp in n.c. new, but then I got 3 NOS ones 4 weeks later in a deal. My advice, is if you have 1979+ birfields of any form get the 80 series driveplates and don't pay more tha $10 each used. New ones are still expensive for what they are and not worth it. the caps can be cheap so if you need one buy it new. all the canadian mine trucks run them (even the 75 w/ aisin hubs were converted back to plates) and they don't wear out (holmass- yours look good? w/ 130K).
just stay away from Classic Cruisers, they want several arms and legs for them.
