Can you figure out the ratio buy spinning drive shaft by hand and counting times rear tire turns around. I tryed and got drive shaft one revolution and 1.25 on the tire. Maybe i did something wrong it is in 1971 malibu build sheet says it has a 2.56 rear end.

With a standard rear end you must turn both wheels one full turn or turn one wheel two full turns with the other wheel being held still. A good posi rear end will turn both wheels together.
