Your description doesn't make much sense. Let's try a different method. Does the truck have an O/D button in the dash panel? If not, you have a 3-speed 727. If yes, you have the 518 (3-speed with overdrive).

My '90 has it directly to the right of the big three gauge cluster, directly above the heater/air cond. controls. You can also look for the O/D solenoid on the transmission. On the driver side just behind the shifter linkage, there the safety neural start switch. It angles in and lays horizontally. If you have a 518, you'll have an overdrive solenoid connector that plugs in vertically. It is just a few inches from the neutral start switch, a little closer to the main body of the transmission, and a little further back from the neutral start switch. It's a 2 pin connector. Dodge was very casual in their introduction of new stuff, usually taking a year by year phase-in approach. I'm not sure they even offered the 4wd with the 518 before 1990.

I have a 1990 FSM and the basic specs on these trucks went unchaged, in some instances, for over a decade so I doubt anything changed from '89 to '90. Most common was the 9 1/4 rear, which had 3.21 and 3.55, while the HD 9 1/4 had 3.55 and 3.90. A side note, the heavier Dana 60 had 4.10, Dana 70 had 4.56 and 4.88. The Danas were mostly in the W-series trucks.
