trying to find out gear ratio

i tried everything we could and we counted the number of teeth on the ring gear and we came up with 39...now what do i have to do with that number to figure out the ratio?

Count the teeth on the pinion, and divide the two.

I'm betting you find 11 on the pinon. 3:54's

The ring gear should have both numbers stamped right on it, no need to count.

You can see the 41 11 on mine just after the serial number. 41/11=3.73
