saginaw 3 spd overdrive/standard differences???

wondering if you could explain the differences between 3spd and 3spd overdrive trans(saginaw) ive got a 3spd in my modified and it really gets up and goes. would like to put an overdrive in, problem is, the rear mounts don't seem to be the same. on the 3spd I was able to use the stock tranny mounts on the tailshaft but on the overdrive i was looking at today there were'nt any. Im assuming it was one out of a truck. is the overdrive different from truck to car??
my concern is that I would have to mount off of the belhousing and I don't have enough room, also my engine is mounted with a hurst mount and it seems like there would be too muck stress on the trans and tailshaft.
whats the gearing like with a four speed and would it fit my stock trans mount???
