    Alright I am working on building a 1952 4 door sedan but i want to find out what kind of gear ratio it would have cause i am going to be droping a 350 4bolt that has been rebuilt and bored over with a mild cam. I am going to be backing that up with a turbo 400 with a nice shift kit. so in return i need to know what me rear end ratio is cause i cant promise i wont take it to the drag way

    Mark the pinion/driveshaft, jack up the wheel and turn it one rotation while someone counts how many times the pinion/driveshaft turns...roughly 3.5 turns would be a 3:42 to one, etc.

    Since you will need to service the diff you should be able to count the teeth and figure it out that way, plus it just might be marked on the ring gear...

    If you are putting alot of power & torque to it you may consider having a newer diff narrowed and set up to fit -or- have a 4-link setup made for it if you are real serious!
