B2 Citroen Differential Ratios.

Craig little writes: "As first step in resolving the damaged crown wheel and pinion on my B2 Citroen I have placed a 'Wanted Advert'. In the process of doing so, I thought I should list the ratio which turned out to be 10/44. Wondering if this was the only ratio ever fitted to the model I searched through all of my refence literature without success. So I request your help to solve what is to me a mystery. If you know or have an accessible crown wheel and pinion available you can check. Please let me know what you find. "
