Manual 4 speed something

I have a 4 speed trans that I got out of a 79 camaro. I was told that it was a Muncie. How do I find out?

I doubt it is a Muncie, unless it was switched out. Can you tell what the case is made of? Or mayby post a picture?

If the shifter shaft for the reverse gear is on the side cover, it's a Saginaw. If the reverse is in the tail shaft, it's a Mincie or T-10.

Saginaws are steel, Muncie and T-10 have aluminum cases.

Count the bolts in the side cover going to the aluminum case. 7 for Muncie 9 for Super T-10

The Saginaw is a good street tranny. Has a good 1st gear. A muncie or T10 is stronger, but the Saginaw is a capeable trans.
