How to determine what ratio you have without removing the cover

(1/2) > >>


I found mine stamped on the passenger side axel tube facing the front. There mine said
Gm35 TUM G070     2
which in a link I found online had a pdf file of ratios it translated to a 2.73 open diff. The TUM was the only part I needed to identify it but the rest will tell you the plant it came from and such I do believe. Here is the link to the pdf I found. Im not 100% sure the link will upload correctly because of its length. But if not you can search gm axle code TUM and it should be the first link. It will say Mitchell 1 where the website usually is shown. Not trying to overstep just make it slightly easier on some people.  although I've never pulled the cover to check.

From link, Nice find

I setup a table at the bottom that calculates speedometer gears and ratio adapters too if needed.
The archive contains two spreadsheets
*-an .XLS file for Microsoft Excel 1997/2000 or newer.
*-an .ODS file for the free Open Office/Libre Office suites calculated applet.
