Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.

This greatly depends on the complete model such as 80-a, 80-1 a, 80-iv, etc. It very well possibly is is 80-iv but need the complete model to confirm. Also they were replaced by the zf-85a which is an 8-deg according to what I am seeing. The 80-a is also an 8-deg whereas the 80-iv is the 12.

Thank you!
- Joe
