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.

Subject: [oletrucks] Trucks:Rear End Ratios
I saw a thread a while back about how to determine rear gear ratios
without having to pull off the cover...Is there a way.? 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
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.
