Hypoid is the design with the pinion below the center line of the axle and Amboid is the design with the pinion above the center line of the axle.

One word still not diciphered is amboid, or ambroid.  Hypoid is the most common gear design, but amboid is the alternative.  Hypoid is the familiar ring and pinion, but what is amboid?  I looked up gear design in Wikipedia but there is no mention of amboid.  I wonder if amboid is worm gear?

Swishy's post got me thinking, I remember finding something about these diffs - included parts lists and the whole nine yards - a quick Google search turned up:
