Question
Hello Howard
How do I identify my tranny model?
My factory manual gives me 2 choices...
Model 12
Model 65
I take it these are BorgWarner numbers...
Thanx
David

Answer
I think the BW 12 and the BW 65 were used in the Daimler version of the XJ-6 and the BW-33 in the early carburetor XJ-6 and the BW 66 in the series III XJ-6. It does not matter as they are all Borg Warner and the factory said use type "G" which in the US is type "F" but most just use Dextron for the softer shifting.
