How does one identify a saginaw 4 speed

I was wondering if there is a number on the tranny that will give info about the tranny like head and block casting numbers? Also I know that Mortec has a very good page on head and block casting numbers, is there another site for Saginaw 4 speeds?

The Saginaw 4-speed is easily identified because it has all 3 shift levers on the side cover.
The front input shaft may have grooves cut around itís diameter. These grooves indicate the ratios of the gears inside.

No grooves 2.84, 2.01, 1.35, 1.00
1 groove 2.54, 1.80, 1.44, 1.00
2 groove 3.11, 2.20, 1.47, 1.00
3 groove 3.50, 2.47, 1.65, 1.00

All this information and more is on this forum. Just search for Saginaw.
