Smile what Ratio is my 9"...

Hi all,

I just got a 9" LSD and was how do what ratio it is.
I was told it was out of a XC and he said he's 99% sure it was out of a pursuit car, if that matters to the ratio???
Anyway is there a way to tell, i included the picture of tag if that helps..

Sorry for the dumb question, this is my first 9" and am on a learning curve :)

Thanks

Ben

Yep, the "L" stands for "traction Lok", and the "3 00" is 3.00:1. Also, the "9" means "9 inch"....

Re: what Ratio is my 9"...

3:1 is a pretty good gear ratio for an everyday driver. Should sit on around 2750rpm at 100 clicks. I personally think that's the best ratio for a country car.
Ask as many questions as you can mate, that's how you learn USEFUL stuff. (not like that shit they teach you at skool)

Re: what Ratio is my 9"...

G'day,
ok...further to the original post...he made it easy.....

Anyone know of any other way of telling if the tag is missing. Have one here in good condition, but is missing its tag.

and NO i am not going to try counting revolutions!! It is out of the vehicle and am happy to open it to find out...ie count teeth on pinion/crown etc.

Cheers
Jas

Carefully mark and count the teeth on both the crown wheel and pinnion. Then divide the two to get the ratio ie 35/10 = 3.50:1
