The FMX transmission is identified by it's cast iron main case with aluminum bolt on bell housing and extension housing (not to be confused with the earlier model Cruise-O-Matic transmissions), unlike later model three-speed automatics whose main case is aluminum.
The FMX transmission had a cast iron main case 9 7/8" long (not to be confused with the Small Case Cruise-O-Matic) and can be identified by the following:
***If your transmission has a cast iron case and the dipstick tube is screwed into the side of the pan, your transmission is NOT an FMX.
***If your transmission has a cast iron case and the dipstick tube is inserted directly into the case, your transmission is an FMX.
