    I found it on a 2wd 76 Truck.
    I turn the tire 1 revolution and the pinon turns 2 times. Are there numbers on the pinon gear? I do see numbers on the ring gear.

    what do all the numbers on the ring gear say? turning the tires is not that accurate of a way to tell.

    On the ring gear you will find "41 10" or "41 11" as well as a long string of numbers. Those numbers are the number of ring and pinion teeth. You divide the larger number by the smaller to get the ratio. eg. 41/10 = 4.10:1 ratio. 41/11 = 3.73:1 ratio.

    As far as junk yard diffs go, the 4.10's and 3.73's are the most common. But whatever you find, just do the math to figure out what ratio you are looking at. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    also lok in glovebox for the RPO SPID label, it might lsit ratio, if is not the std ratio for the drivetrain put in it, but you never know it might have been swaped since 76, so yeah best bet is to pull the diff cover and look.

    good luck

    I got it for $119 out the door. And, if I give them my 10 bolt, I get $25 back. It's 3:73 Open. I got the u-bolts & plates too.
