Post saginaw selector forks

After opening the side cover, I found two selector forks, one looking like it has been broken?
Are the selector forks in a saginaw trannyalike in shape?
Should one look different then the other?

Yes someone out here can help you. The first and second shift fork in a Saginaw is different from third and fourth. The reason for this is so the shift fork will clear the casting that holds the reverse idler gear. That is the reason that it looks like there is half a fork for first and second. Also a tip for reinstalling the side cover. Connect an arm to the reverse shatf on the side cover because it's easy for the shaft to slide and let the check ball and spring to fall out and not let reverse stay locked out hen the forward gears are used. Hope this helps and let me know if you have anymore questions about Saginaws. I've been using them in my 71 GTO for the past 9 years.
