Between which trans? Saginaw and Muncie and 4 speed manuals, a TH350 is a 3 speed auto.

A th350 box is a chev 3 speed automatic where as the Muncie and saginaw are both 4 speed manul boxes.
What he may have been alluding to is that the speedo for the TH350 maybe the same as one of the manual boxes.
If my memory serves me correct, both the muncie and saginaw boxes are similar in size but the saginaw case is cast iron and the muncie case is alloy.
The muncie is the stronger of the 2 boxes.
