 ```Unless it's a positraction rearend, just jack up one side so that one wheel remains in contact with the ground. Then slowly turn WHEEL one revolution while you count the number of revolutions the driveshaft makes.

I looked thru the archives but could not find the article...When I spin the pinion one complete 360* revolution the axle turns 4/5ths of one revolution. If I pull the cover i could count the teeth on both the ring and the pinion then what? If I divide the ring by the pinion i am gonna get 1.08? something... if I divide the pinion by the ring i will get .08? something. DUH ! I can't believe I forgot how to do this... I can't believe I can spin the pinion one turn and get 4/5 of a turn from the axle shaft. Rogerg 51-3100 AD Stocker ```
