Take the rear end cover off count the pinion teeth and the ring teeth.Divide pinion into the ring and whoala ratio.So if ya have 14 pinoin and 40 ring ya have 2.86.Just an example not a ratio I have run into.

Thanks...I remember now that you told me... I guess I've got "Old Timers"...LOL Used to know a lot more about this stuff back in the '70's, but forgot when I got out of racing...Also, a LOT has changed since back then...Used to you could kick out the glass, put a cage in it and go, but not anymore...Thanks again...
