a guy recently gave me a 3 speed trans out of a 1966 chevy truck. It has 4 bolts holding the side plate on. What kind of trans could this be? a muncie 3 speed?

if it is the one with the fat belly that looks pregnant and weighs a ton it is a 1.74 i believe but they are next to impossible to break

I believe you have an older saginaw 3-speed. They made that design from the late thirties to the late sixties. I think the Muncie 3-speed had a seven bolt side cover. Both these trannies came with a 1.75 second, maybe other ratios too. Visit www.kajunjon.com , he can help you i.d. the tranny for sure.
