Awesome Bob.  Was the 12 bolt original to this chassis?

Bob, your tires are already off the ground real easy to check the gearing unless there is a need to change the fluid.

Mark the tire at the 6:00 position with some tape or chock, then mark the driveshaft. Turn the tire exactly 1 full turn (posi diff). Count the number of times the driveshaft turns.

2-3/4 turns of the driveshaft = 2.73, just past 3 turns = 3.08, 3-1/3 = 3.31, just past 3-1/2 = 3.55, 3-3/4 = 3.73, just past 4 = 4.10 or 4.11.

Looking good!

Regarding gearing, and assuming the gearing is stock GM... It could be anywhere from 2.72 to 3.73 unless it came from a COPO type car (yenko, baldwin motion etc..)it came with 4.11 gears.  Use the spin the yoke to tire method to get you into the ball park.

Edit ^^like that^^ Thanks Posi

Have you sat in the drivers seat yet and made engine noises?

have not updated in a while. getting the wiring finished up. Installing the Hooker super comp 2" tube headers was a pain in the ass. a little grinding and removing the starter, oil filter housing and busting my but to get to some of the header bolts, and both sides are finally in. the ac stuff was getting in the way as well, so the decision was made to scrap it. I found a company that makes a new heater box that allows me to still have heat and defrost as well as looks appropriate on the firewall. fender had to removed in order to swap the ac out, kinda thinking I should have taken the nose off long ago, much easier to do things.
