    I got what I hope is a posi for my K 20. I took off the ring gear and seperated the halfs. There is a cross with 4 spider gears and side gears in each half. Does this mean this is a posi? I see no clutches or springs like in the 12 bolt type. Can anybody help me out, thanks guys, Rick. Chillen in Southeast PA. 18° buurrrrrrrrrrrr.

    from your description, it sounds like an open carrier.

    a limited slip (posi) would have clutches. lockers would either have some sort of dog mesh type side gears, or a combination of the two.
