Turn the drive gear 1 complete turn, and count how many times the driven gear turns. For example, to figure out the rear end gear ratio if the drive shaft turns once and the rear turns 3 and a half times you have a 1:3.5 gear ratio. This means the rear wheels turn 3.5 times for each one turn of the drive shaft.

If you have several sprockets on the front as well, then you start counting from small front/big rear (first gear) to small front/small rear, then you start over att big front/big rear to big front/small rear(last or highest gear).

How does a transfer case work?

A transfer case has 2 out put shafts that face in opisite directons the rear one drives the rear wheels and the forward one, the front wheels. The rear one is the main drive and is in motion anyntime the transmission provides input. When 4X4 is selcted, a shift dog moves an idler gear rearward and engages the two shafts together and 4X4 is the result. To get 4X4 Hi or Low. the selctor simpley moves the idler gear to a bigger or smaller gear on the primary shaft, depending on what speed was selected . Reference : New Process Gear
