Bryon you have created a great report. I am sure all of us who read and use your report appreciate the amount of time and effort you have dedicated to its creation. The 67-69 Camaro parts catalogue and chassis shop manual NAME the part carrying the differential gears "Differential Case". I was hoping you would consider editing your report that calls this part the carrier to agree with the GM manuals. The incorrect use of the part name "carrier" has caused me much aggravation in my career. I am writing this to try and help dispel some of the confusion.

I understand your concern and I realize what wording the parts books use. The case is just that, a case for all of the other parts which are then usually referred to as the carrier.

Consider how things are worded on these sites.

I will look things over again and may consider a wording adjustment.

I realize that many people like you and I have written adds that call the differential case the carrier. That is what has led to the confusion. I believe your report is a technical report and would be best with the technically correct NAMES of the parts. On removeable carrier drive axles [pot, pumpkin, etc.] such as the Chrysler 8 3/4 inch when someone calls looking for a carrier they are usually looking for one of three common carriers. I am referring to 1960's muscle cars. On 67-69 Camaro when a call is received looking for a carrier it might be for a carrier [converting from 10 bolt to 12 bolt] or a diff case needed for changing the ratio. Many questions will need to be asked to clarify what part is needed. That is the confusion.  Maybe I am just going stir crazy due to self isolating for two weeks.
