I would like to know the shifting pattern and
the gearing change for each one.

Thanks
Bob

Bob,

It should be the same as a Warford and my Chicago Mark-E if memory serves....



Here is a vid of me shifting my Chicago on the fly.

I am assuming you mean a Muncie (never heard of a Munche Transmission :-)). Mine is not like what Clayton posted. It looks like this:

R-------3
....|
....N
....|
1-------2

(Ignore the .... above, beside and below the N, it's the only way I could get it to line up.)

Clayton, I sent you a PM the other day regarding the Chicago part that I need. Did you receive it? Dave

Thanks for the info. This one is going in my Snow Bird and will only used in low for more power to the rear axle. I don't think I'll get over 10 MPH when in use. Will look for a two speed to put in later (under and direct).

Bob

Bob;
Don't feel bad about labeling it a Munche transmission. When I was trucking, I picked up a load of eggs in northwest Iowa and they had the bill of lading address to Munche, Indiana. Found out, by the zip code, it was Muncie, Indiana, where the Muncie Transmission was built.

I have one I call a Munchie, or sometimes the munched Muncie. It blew out a bushing. One gear set ran up on another gear set. Broke the shifting tower. Totaled about half the gear teeth in it. However a few pieces survived that I used to repair the Muncie in my boat-tail.
You see. Sometimes it pays to keep those really bad parts.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
