A question for all you junk yard dogs out there, just got my camaro caged and Im going on the great parts hunt at a couple local junk yards for saginaw 3 speeds. Can anyone tell me a quick way to tell what gear ratios are inside or is it a must to pull the side cover and start counting teeth. Id like to find some with 1:68 second gearing? Ive heard you can tell by the input shaft? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

no lines = 1.68 second gear
1 line= 1.50
2 lines = 1.84
3 lines = 1.89

Does the same system apply for the Saginaw 4 speed?

4 speed:
no lines 2.84 2.01 1.35 1.00
1 line 2.54 1.80 1.44 1.00
2 line 3.11 2.20 1.47 1.00
3 line 3.50 2.47 1.65 1.00
But I would still pull the side cover to check out the condition of the gears...

This may be a stupid question, but what are you refering to when you say "1,2 OR 3 LINES" ?

where the clutch hooks up there will be lines or no lines on the input shaft
