Finding ratio without 'code':

Put the car in 5th, lift one front tire off the ground and rotate the crankshaft.

Rule #1:
For a 3.52 gear ratio: 4 crank revs = 3 tire revs. (74 ring/ 21 pinion teeth=3.5238095)
Rule #2:
For a 3.79 gear ratio: 3 crank revs = 2 tire revs. (72 ring/19 pinion teeth= 3.7894736)

Once you get the cars dialed-in (compression, leaks, bearings, alignment, brakes) swap in new rubber and glass, you've got something which should last for years!

I can't provide a video, but I can provide some pictures.
Here's the thread
http://geometroforum.com/single/?p=439157&t=4187023
and Wobblybob gives me credit in his first post (thanks for that).

Here you go:
4.39

4.10

3.79:

3.52

There are many threads outlining how to count teeth to determine the ratio and we should thank Lihtan and Dattman for their contributions.
