Yeah you can do that but normally it's kinda hard to see the piņon gear cause it's blocked by the carrier. You should be able to find a stamp tooth count somewhere on the outside of the ring gear and normally the stamp on the piņon gear is on the flat part rear facing in the vehicle toward the ring gear and divid the two to get the ratio. Such as I originally wanted to know what my car had so I took the big number(ring gear) and divided it by the piņon gear and I had 3.23 gears. But I had a two speed power glide in my car and that ratio was common in alot of el camino's in 64.
