    What are the shift patterns for the Muncie & Saginaw 4-speed transmissions? Do both have reverse in different positions from one another?

    I.e:

    1 3
    |-|-|
    2 4 R

    Thanks.

    Duh, I must have screwed up my linkage on my Saginaw...my reverse is left & down. It works fine & feels natural, so I guess I'll leave it like that.

    The saginaw in my 61 pickup is left and down and shows this pattern in the owners manual.

    That's interesting. My Saginaw is a Model 441, but I really don't know what year it is. I know it's a car trans, because of the gearing. I had a helluva time trying to find a gear shift knob with the correct (or would it be "incorrect") pattern. It feels real comfortable to pull the thing left & towards me.

    It is as simple as flipping the lever. as long as it doesn't hit the speedo.

    I think everyone HAS to do this once. Success teaches you nothing, thankfully the fix is simple.

    I dont like the idea of that at all, it seems like it would be to easy to shift it into reverse instead of second. :eek: :eek:

    My reverse lever is upside down on my Muncie for clearance reasons. It's left and back. No issues what-so-ever with second gear. Works for me.
