Transmission ID Help

I have a GM automatic out of an 85 Olds Culass w/307 engine. The guy claims it's a 200-4R with a lock out converter. Here's the numbers on the Tag on the tail...B 128 H, and under that is 85 BH 276993. Is this a 200-4R?...

this a 200-4r transmission.

the converter is a lock up converter design, not lock out

Look around the top of the bellhousing,there may be a tag with a bar code and some numbers on it.I got info on a 700R4 by googling those numbers.If it's been rebuilt the tag may be missing.

Thanks for the FAST and informative replies! Problem solved...gave it back to the guy. It's a shame, though...I only gave $100 for it. NOW all I need to do is locate a real 200-4R. Will the TV cable from the 200 work on a 200-4R? Got a brand new in the box one for the 200...

The easy way to ID a 200-4R is the pan. It's almost as long as the whole transmission, and its shape is strangely similar to that of Illinois.

Yes, the TV cable will work. TH200C,TH2004R & TH700R4 use the same type TV cable. The cable lengths do vary between different vehicles.
