1969 10 bolt 8.2 rear end

I am looking to rebuild my 1969 BOP 10 bolt 8.2 rear end. I find plenty of information on on Chevrolet 10 bolt 8.2 but not much on the BOP. Does anyone have any information on how to set the preload and the back lash on this rear end. the more specific the better.

That's about the only thing that is the same as a Chevy 8.2, but the Procedure for setting Back Lash is basicly the same on all GM rear Axles of the era.
