Axle Ratio/Tire Size Calculators

**For Jeep or Chevy Technical Info see bottom of page

Okay, so you've torn your pumpkin apart and have the ring gear and pinion gear teeth count. This calculator will give you the gear ratio, just plug in the numbers.
 Ring Gear/Pinion Gear Teeth to Gear Ratio Ring Gear Teeth Count: / Pinion Gear Teeth Count: Gear Ratio:

Ever wonder how far off your speedometer is with your new bigger tires? I'm using a simple ratio calculation, so this info will only approximate your corrected speed and depends on the accuracy of tire size diameters (assumimg nothing but tire size has changed).
 Speedo converter Original Tire Diameter: New Tire Diameter: Speedometer Reading (MPH): Corrected Speed (MPH):

Now that you have your truck lifted, you want bigger meats. They look cool and have the potential of being very functional, but they may also be robbing you of power/gas mileage. This calculator will get you back to a ratio that's closer to your original. Enter the values on the left and press Compute.
 Find new Gear Ratio with new tire size New Tire Diameter: Old Tire Diameter: Current Gear Ratio: New Gear Ratio:

Ever wonder what your low-low-low gear ratio is, your "crawl ratio"? You'll need to do a little research by finding out the transfer case and transmission ratios first. Enter your values on the left side, press Compute and your answer will be on the right.
 Find Overall Crawl Ratio Transmis Ratio: TransCas Ratio: Axle Ratio: Overall Ratio:

I've spend a bunch of time trying to WAG (wild ass guess) my actual MPH when going down the road. By knowing your gear ratios and tire size you'll get a more accurate idea here. Enter the value on the left, press Compute.
 Find MPH RPM: Tire Diameter: Axle Ratio: Transmis Ratio: TransCas Ratio: MPH:

I suppose if you don't have a tachometer you could use this form, otherwise it's only useful to find out how accurate your Tach is. Enter the values on the left, press Compute.
 Find RPM MPH: Axle Ratio: Transmis Ratio: TransCas Ratio: Tire Diameter: RPM:

This formula is a nice way to get the tire diameter of those metric tires that are common on just about everything stock. For example a 265/75R16 would be around 31.6 inches tall. Enter the numbers into this form in the order you read them from the tire and press Compute.
 Convert P-Metric tire to Tire Diameter inches Example: 195/75R15 / R Tire Diameter:

This calculates the amount of torque applied to the axle shafts. (Efficiency factor of 0.90 applied)

NP205 BASIC INFO
The NP205 is a gear driven part time transfer case. It can be operated in either two or four wheel drive. The overall length of the NP205 case is 12"-13" from the face of the case to the rear output yoke's center on fixed yoke models. The shift positions of the NP205 are as follows from the most forward position (towards the engine) to the rear most position: Four Wheel Drive Low Range, Neutral, Two Wheel Drive High Range, Four Wheel Drive High Range When in Two Wheel Drive, the NP205 does not turn the front driveshaft. The NP205 has a high range of 1.00:1 and a low range of 1.96:1. The NP205 has a fill hole for lubrication in the rear face of the case under the rear output shaft. The drain plug for the NP205 is on the rear face of the case on the lowest part of the case. The NP205 uses 80w-90 gear oil for lubrication. The NP205 has a three bolt cover over the idler shaft. This is one of the identifiable traits of the NP205. The shift linkage of the NP205 Is not adjustable. It operates on a simple lever with few parts. The NP205 case is one piece of cast iron. All of the working parts are in this single housing. The identification tag of the NP205 is located above the front driveshaft output The NP205 was available from 1973 to 1991. The NP205 holds 2.5 qts. prior to 1980.
