Crankshaft Wiki has a gear ratio check article. May help you learn the gear ratio on the old car.

seems to me due to the gas crisi and epa standards they used a 2.76 ratio.
you will still need to check as crosley pointed out. I was merely making mention as to one of the ratios used and why it was used.
That should be an 8.25 with a ten bolt cover ...Yes?
