This needs to be corrected to
"Turn the OUTPUT 10 times and count how many times the INPUT turns. 22 times around on the INPUT would signify an M21 or M22 and 25 times would mean its an M20 or aftermarket ratio M22W."

Thanks to Cobalt327 for catching my error. I meant to correct this awhile ago, but haven't been online much.
