The ratio specific to the V-6 Pinto, no, I don't know. But as mentioned in the other post the Ford 8" as it came in the Pinto or Mustang II only had 3:00, 3:40 and 3:55 ratios. The rear tag on the axle housing bolt should state the ratio. My assumption is that the any of those ratios might have been used.
