most reliable method I have found is to measure the out put shaft diameter with a vernier caliper .

Aluminum power glide , 27 splines on out put shaft

1.153 to 1.155 = 1.82 gear

1.170 to 1.173 = 1.76 gear

Is the trans apart or together?

12 5/8 inch is a 1:82
12 7/8 inch is a 1:76
that is the over all length of input shaft

The problem with using the input shaft length as a guide is some one may have swapped in the incorrect shaft years back.


if the trans are apart, it is easy to tell gear ratio.

The 1.82 gear carrier with attached out put shaft is a stamped steel piece.

The 1.76 gear carrier is forged looking , not stamped steel
