That's exactly what I had to do with the Saginaw I'm using in the Deuce. It was from a truck and the front bearing retainer was too large to fit in a "car" bellhousing. A quick call to a Saginaw supply house in Vegas netted me a smaller retainer, a couple gaskets and a new tail shaft seal and I was good to go.

The Saginaw 4 speed was used in everything from Vegas to half ton trucks. Including small block Camaros, Vettes, and Novas and just about any low to mid performance GM model cars and trucks from the mid 60's through the mid 80's. The Muncie was used in all high horsepower applications simply because it was strong enough to handle a big block. My 66 Vette had a Muncie behind its 425 hp 427.
