Need Help Verifying Volvo Transmission Ratio

I have a Volvo MD 2020 diesel with a MS2A transmission.

I'm going to replace my prop and need to find out the transmission gear ratio.

The weather is too nasty to turn over the engine with a wrench and count revolutions, (never mind the impossible access to do that) but here's what I read directly off the transmission plate:

MS2A 3/0 873074

Does this mean a 3.0 : 1 ratio?

Thanks for your response.
