Your question does not make any sense to me. More explanation maybe?

I don't have a picture showing a cracked 4-speed case. But, as I recall, the crack occurs across the bottom of the case at the lower point. The crack sometimes extends up each side as well. If you clean the bottom of the case, the crack will normally show if there is one. You could check the housing again a week later. I believe the transmission oil will leak out over time if there is a crack.

If your not sure if its cracked fill the bare case as high as you can with something like parts cleaner and get the outside bone dry. Let it sit for a few days and see if its leaked out.
