I have about a half dozen DG 250 automatic transmissions, all from Jaguar. I 
assume it is the same transmission as Rover. Studebaker also used them. Mine 
were fitted with the speed hold. Contact me if you need anyhing; and in case 
of the lever I can email photos. James Dean, Ft Lauderdale. 
jaguru at bellsouth.net  or phone 1954JAGUARS. I ship worldwide
