Tranny ID problem

I'm back again with my 84 Pontiac Parisienne! This time I'm trying to find out what kind of tranny it has! (is there anything on a Pontiac easy to identify or fix?!) First, it IS an automatic, and it has overdrive. Cannot see usual seril # locations due to obstructions (except it isnt on the shaft area) Haynes manual shows 4 pan patterns and mine matches none of them! The pan is mostly square with 16 bolts. Can you help?

Think Auto Zones website answered my question (THM 200-4R) Maybe they dont have the best house parts, but they have exellent info on their website! Now I have another question...looks like a support cross-member bracket is blocking the rear bolts to the pan. Obviously, the bracket has to be moved out of the way. Can I somehow remove just the bracket or does the whole cross member have to be loosened/removed?

If you have wobble bars you can work around it.Most folks don't have them however unless they do it for a living.Wobble bars are extensions that allow you to work around slight corners.

Thanks Davo! I don't have any but I do have access to them. I'll give it a try.
