Re: explain me this



If only one wheel turns, more than likely not Sure-Grip, or its worn out. To check open ( or worn-out SG) rear gear ratio, I believe you must have one rear tire on the ground and one tire in the air, then use your method to check.

OK, maybe I am descending into early senility or something. So yesterday i had the car up on jack stands, so i decided its a good time to find out what that rear axle ratio really is. The guy I bought the car from didn't know, but told me he knew it was a sure grip.
   I get under there and put a piece of masking tape on tire, and revolve it till it lines up with front part of leaf spring. I notice  right away the other wheel isn't turning so I question the whole sure grip thing ( not the first time I've heard that one). But anyway I  the have transmission in nuetral and mark the driveline, and turn it by hand. It takes less than 1.5 revolutions of the driveline to bring that tape on tire around one full revolution. I can't believe it. I check it 5 times. then I do it the other way, I revolve the tire and count the driveline, same thing. What gives?? I have a 1.45 axle ratio?? Something I must be overlooking.
  PS- car has  8.75 axle
