As you've described it, I'd guess in the $400-500 range.

It would help if you included more information in your solicitation: M20 or M21? Year? How did YOU use it? cruising behind a mild motor? or drag racing behind a big block? With the broken ears, and no description of the *parts* or the stampings, then it has no value to a person restoring a camaro or chevelle or ? whatever the trans came from. If you get the numbers stamped on it and get the castings nos from both front and tail shaft housing, # of splines on the output, grooves on the input shaft, take a photo of the gears with the side cover removed, and additional photos of the trans, then That information *might* move it up a notch or two for someone...

Just a note about your trans. Any muncie that has had ears welded on should have the face of the case milled flat. MOst all of these cases that have been
welded have lost their flatness and need to be milled a few thousandth to be flat and parallel to the rear of the case.

Broken ears are common on the Muncie 4 speed. There is a heavy duty case available as a replacement but welded on ears is common place

Muncie ears only break when they are being installed by someone who does NOT know what they are doing!

If that's the case than what is being done wrong. Got any facts to back up that statement.

Using the 4 assembly screws as pullers to pull trans into the bell housing with any of the conditions below:
  • Painted bell housings - not cleaning the pilot diameter tightens up the fit.
  • Misaligned clutch disc or beat up pilot bushing (currently in another thread).
  • Installing the trans with an angular misalignment and forcing it.
  • Dings in pilot not inspected and corrected.

others for sure....

Yes, the ears get broken when people attempt to pull the transmission into the bellhousing using the bolts, and that is wrong. If the transmission doesn't slip right in without using the bolts to pull it, then the clutch isn't aligned with the input shaft grooves, and trying to FORCE it in with the bolts will only apply too much force to the ears.

One method of getting the transmission to seat all the way into the b/h is to put the trans in gear using the levers on the side and manually 'rotate' the entire transmission by hand (from underneath the car obviously) until the trans slips in. You may have to have some just 'partially' push in the clutch while doing this if the clutch plate isn't properly aligned. partially pushing in the clutch allows the clutch disk to 'slide' a little to align with the transmission. The transmission SHOULD move all the way in until there is contact between the front of the transmission is touching the rear of the bellhousing. If it seems to 'stop' approx 1/4-3/8" from touching, then the input shaft and clutch are not aligned to one another.

Having grease in the pilot bearing that becomes a block when the shaft tip tries to go in. Add that with an impatient 17 year old on his back in the dirt in the dark with a flashlight and a wrench. That will break one of those ears right off.....
