    Yes, it's a 4 speed manual tranny GM used. 1st gear is geared at 6.55 - so low that most people use the tranny like a three speed and just start from a stop in 2nd gear.

    The SM465 is a 4 speed manual (stated about) used by GM for 20 years in trucks from 1/2 tons to 2.5 tons.

    Just something about cast iron.

    now now just think here, 465, 4 speed, 6.5:1 first gear. Sure its 6.55 but 6.5 is a lot closer than 7 /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
