    Well, hell... if you have the gears out enough to read the numbers, just count the teeth and divide! :wink1:

    Ring gear divided by pinion gear will give you the ratio.

    Probably a good call. If Canadian skeeters are anything like Michigan skeeters, you'd probably pass out from blood loss before you finished counting.

    Reading the numbers off the edge of the ring gear is a lot easier than trying to count the teeth.
