The lever that I am interested in is attached to the car and not the
transmission but I am interested in that DG transmissions that you have. Can
you look at the name plate and see the exact model, including any ending
letters? My transmission is a DG150M. I think that Jaguar used the DG
transmissions for a long period of time and could have used any of DG150,
DG150M, DG200, DG200M, DG250 and DG250M. The "M" is important because it
uses a different valve assembly. Do you have any transmissions with the
model ending in "M"?

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.
