Can someone tell me which year Muncies have the linkage bolts on the side cover and which years have the studs.

Nope, but I bought a new Muncie trans with 3/8" bolts around 1970 and from around then and after they all had that type.

Older were 5/16" studs and I think some had 5/16" bolts. The slots were smaller on the shifter arms too.
I bought a Hurst Shifter for my 67 and had to change the shifter arms to larger slots to fit the 3/8" bolt cover, so 67 must have had the 5/16" size.

Check my web page for First Gen Camaro suspension info:

In 67 and 68 the tranny shifting arms used a fine threaded stud. In 69 a 3/8-16 coarse threaded bolt was used to hold the shifter linkage to the shifting arms.
