THANKS DAN, ONE MORE QUESTION - CAN I ? PART NUMBER ? IS DELPHI BRAND GOOD ? I APPRECIATE THE INFO...PAUL
Expert:  Dan replied 5 years ago.

Transmission solenoids arent too picky so you can use any brand solenoid from your local parts store. I do not have a part number for this. I also just realized you will have to remove the axle shaft assembly to remove side cover. Here are instructions for that. Thanks again.
