I am trying to change out my 7 1/4" rear end with a 8 3/4". I have the correct u- bolts for the 8 3/4" rear, but the bolts will not fit through the spring plate.
The spred of the holes is set up for the 7 1/4" rear.
I have been trying to locate some replacement plates that will work, but I can not find any.
Does anyone know where I can buy some ?

Can the hole in the plate be enlarged to make the u-bolts fit or will this make for a sloppy connection?

Is there a set of u- bolts that fit a 8 3/4" rear and then set in to fit a 7 1/4" plate?

Check on eBay; there's a set for sale in Maryland. Type in '1965 Valiant 8 3/4' and go from there. :)
