Re: [MV] Rockwell Axle information request

Jim, the gear ratio is most likely 6.44 to 1. There is a remote possibility
that it could be a 10.26 to 1 if it came out of a rocket launcher chassis.
The term toploader usually refers to the double reduction design where the
pinion is above the centerline of the axle.
