    If it's a Muncie 4 speed, then it can be put in reverse and another forward gear at the same time.
    The reverse gear is in the tailshaft and is not interlocked with any of the forward gears.
    You can't get the transmission in any two forward geras becasue of the interlock built into the shifter fork arrangement in the side plate.
    But you can get reverse and a forward gear, if the shift linkage is sloppy or badly out of adjustment.
    This won't happen with a Saginaw because the reverse shift arm is in the same side cover as the forward gears.
    I think Borg Warner 4 speeds are the same as the Muncie, but I'm not 100% sure of that.

    It's a BW Super T-10, and yes, very similar to the Muncie and yes again the linkage AND the shifter were sloppy with age. I rebuilt the shifter but it still didn't give me what I wanted. I've since changed it out with a Hurst, and by default I had to change out the linkage rods and levers also. Now it's super smooth. Gotta love Hurst.

    That's how a trans-brake works in an automatic! lol
    If winning was easy, then the losers would be winners.
    I wish I was the man my dog thinks I am.
