Muncie 3 speed
I have a 70 Buick GS that came factory equipped with a heavy duty cast iron muncie 3 speed tranny
I cant seem to find any information on these tranny's. There's plenty of 4 speed info.
All Im looking for is decoding these #'s
Also these numbers are on a machined pad under the cover
Any help appreciated
Nevermind, I just found the info on a camaro site
Hopefully this info will help someone else out

3 Speed Saginaw Transmission
I think i have a 3 speed Saginaw Transmission but not sure.
Numbers are as follows:
Left Side Cover GM 22-3952645
C 6 1
S 1 C 1 7 (serial tag)
c 2 1
37 GM 3873886
Let me know what you think, is this a m22 rockcrusher 3 speed saginaw. The GM-22 on the side cover is throwing me off
That is a saginaw 3spd.
"Rockcrusher" transmissions (M22) were technically option code M22 for severe duty applications.
I'll spare you the boredom, just know that the only "Rockcrushers" are 4-speeds
Type- Saginaw 3-speed manual
Years- 1970-'72 ( C 6 1= March 6, '71)
Main Case- 3925647
Extension Housing- 3873886
Side Cover- 3952645
The "GM-22" is a foundry marking, most likely.
Praise from caesar...
I tell you when a guy buys parts for the "M22" he over-paid for...and I have to tell him its an M20...or worse a T10....oh man
ok thanks for the info, i actually got the entire transmission for free with the engine with 40000 original miles on it. Just trying to get info on these 3 speeds, i read that they were also in chevelles.
Not sure if these were the same type of gears.
