Default 9.25 Diff Question

A buddy of mine has a 79RC and his rear has some sort of Detroit Locker. Would that locker fit into my 93w150 9.25 rear? What I've read says they're both 9.25's but I wasn't sure if there were differences between the two aside from bolt pattern.

Thanks

So, apparently the only discretion I can find is that older Detroits don't have provisions for the tone gear that runs the speedo sensor in the rear axle. I'm assuming I can just deal with no speedo readout and use a GPS or something for speed.

the 79 did not have a provision (big word) for the abs exciter ring but if it has an aftermarket diff in it might have it. other than that it will work.

I'm pretty much positive it's an Eaton locker. He's been out of town so it's not been possible to look at it. I just wanted to make sure that even if it doesn't have that ring that I could still use it and just deal with no ABS. I've driven plenty of vehicles without ABS, anyway.
