All parts are interchangeable. Does this help? Now for what it was exactly in without vin????????????????????? you guess is good as mine. Good luck.
I do not know where you are getting any of the "info" you're posting! There is no "396 400 427 454", no "81" anything, no "CG", no "390 HP", no "Monte Carlo, Chevelle, Police", and sure as hell no "TH400". So no, nothing you have said "helps"- at all.

Are you even posting to the thread you think you are posting to? THIS thread's question is regarding a TH700R4- possibly from a '91 vehicle, in a '73 Camaro Z/28, for cripes' sake.

OK guys I've got the real VIN number.
It comes from the location on the case identified in the link provided by cobalt327.

0BPM353H

Hopefully one of you may now be able to identify the original vehicle this tranny was installed in.

Sorry for the confusion with incorrect numbers.

1990, unsure about what the letters "BP" are- apparently the "M" of "BPM" is just a designation for a TH700R4. The BP part of the code I cannot find, if you had a factory manual you might find the rest of the code meaning. This is a commonly asked- but never answered- question seen throughout many forums when doing a SEARCH, BTW.

The "353" is a Julian date (353'rd day of the year, or December 19 [Dec. 18 if leap year]) and the "H" is 2nd shift.

In any event it should have the 30 spline input, better sprags, 10 vane pump, etc. and it's among the more desirable ('89-up) trannys to build.

If you happen to find a list of the codes, pls. post it here.

Someone mentioned in a post (AF AI K) or as it was in post AFAIK which i was assuming (wrong on my part) that they were transmission suffixes And i came up with corresponding uses for these such suffix codes. Clearly abbreviated speech in the attempt to identification of a part or part number has no place here. This is how I deduced all my info now do you see where the data came from. A clearly misread post with abbreviated speech or what ever AFAIK means?

I apologize if my using acronyms tripped you up- this can be confusing when we are also using codes from various parts.

HERE is a site that you can use if it come up again- and it very likely will, as acronyms are all over the internet and even on this forum.

The last exchange I had on this exact same subject:

Since these acronyms (and many others) are used often and are practically universal on automotive boards and sites, it might be better for you to get up to speed, instead of everyone else writing everything in longhand. At least that's my take on it, YMMV.

Thanks cobalt327.

I am a bit suspect of the 'P' in the VIN. The stamp is a bit messed up at that digit. I have attached a photo I took yesterday. It is as good a pic of the VIN as I could get. The upper number is a reflection off a small mirror. The lower number is the real deal as seen from my back
