    If a D60 has 41 ring gear teeth then what gear ratio is that?

    I looked at jegs and most the gears for the D60 have 41 teeth. These are Richmond Gears

    3.73=41-11
    4.10=41-10
    4.56=41-9
    4.88=39-8
    5.13=41-8
    5.38=43-8

    Thanks. I should have known that I would need the pinion also.
