Default Need help identifying a rear axle

I apparently can't post pics and have a rear end I'd like to identify. I'm hoping its a 9", but thinking its an 8". My question is can anyone pm me their email address so i could send pics to confirm? Or I could text the pics have of it if you wanted to share cell number in pm. Thank you

What's the bolt pattern for the 3rd member? Is it like a circle? Or is it kind of oval, flat on the top and bottom?

To me in one pic it looks round, the other it looks oval. I haven't bought this yet and I'm trying to determine what it is first. The seller doesn't take the best pics.

I've looked online to try to tell the difference, but I just figure someone familiar could tell with a glance.

Thank you for the reply 69Mach1377. Phenomenal site/car! My problem is I only have a picture and it looks to my untrained eye, that I could go either way. Thus why I'd like someone plenty of experience that could spot it in a glance, give it a look. Apperently people must be worried about giving email out. Trying to find alternative expert.

If the Rear in question has the hump, does that mean its a 9" for certain?

yes but they made 9's that did not have a conspicuous hump but an 8 never had any hump.

It wouldn't let me post pics before. I must've hit the magic number on posts, I don't know. Anyways, here are the pics, there not the best.
