THE 2 SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION

The Jet-A-Way was the Oldsmobile name for the GM Super Turbine 300. They are completely different from the Powerglide. The Jet-A-Way was the only automatic available for the 65 & 66 4-4-2's. A "Special Duty" Jet-A-Way was used in the 4-4-2. It featured additional forward and reverse clutches, a recalibrated valve body for a more positive (harder) shift and other performance improvements. NOTE: Some very early 65,s use a TH400 style metal tag with Jet-A-Way codes

The code is either stamped on a metal tag or on the lower servo cover. It identifies the year, model, date built and plant shift.

EXAMPLE: 65NJ135D

Model Year  = 65  
442 Aplication = NJ  
Built on the 135th day of the year = 135
Day Shift (D=Day N=Night) = D

SERIES                                                           CODE
3400 ..................................................................... MJ
3800 ..................................................................... MK


MUNCIE 4 SPEED

Transmission code is stamped on the right side of the case ahead of the extention. The code indicates the transmission type, the month and day produced and on which shift it was produced. (Not found on all transmissions)

Transmission Type = P (Muncie)
Month = 06   June
Day = 21   21st day
N = Night Shift
