IIRC, both the TH200C and the TH2004R have "METRIC" on their pans.

Because the TH200C has the ability to lock up the torque converter, don't be fooled by the lockup engaging into thinking it's a 4-speed. The shift indicator lens on a vehicle equipped w/a TH200C will have only 3 forward gears indicated, (something like P N D 2 1), while the TH2004R will show 4 forward gears, the last forward gear is usually circled to indicate Overdrive.

Of course this assumes the original tranny is in place- which it probably is.
