Checking final drive -- please help me troubleshoot

So I read this thread on final drive ratios, wanting to confirm that the transmission in my Geo that I pulled from a Suzuki is indeed a 3.52 final drive. I duly lined up my timing mark, raised the RH wheel (LH on ground), chalked the wheel, set the car in 5th gear, and turned the crank one full 360. The RH wheel made approx . 75% (maybe 77%) turn. This doesn't correspond the potential results this thread as I understand it -- what am I missing?

Your input is appreciated!
