Let me say this right up front: one of the '4's in 4-4-2 IS 4 SPEED. Now, this isn't a G project, but a few of you run a Muncie, so let's talk about jammin' gears. My arch nemesis for quite some time has been the Muncie in my 67 442. This thing has tested me in ways that I do not appreciate. I guess the beginning really involves the discovery of the crooked frame and breaking z-bars around 2001 or so. Then, I found the limits of old gears in the burnout box one Friday night. I later learned that a 2.20 1st gear in a "performance", close ratio trans is pointless on a dragstrip with a 3.70 rear. I now have an M22W gearset from AutoGear along with their Supercase, sealed bearings, iron mid plate, side cover and forks, and front bearing support.
