1996 transmission identification help!

I'm replacing the NSS on my 1996 Xj 4.0high output. I'm getting the replacement part from napa and they have two different ones on there web site for the 3 speed and 4 speed. What's an easy way to determine which one I have?

How many times does it shift as you accelerate.

I haven't driven it in 2 years and am getting ready for a safety Monday. So I don't know how many times it shifts.

Well which one was it ? I would guess the difference is non-overdrive(3) or overdrive(4).

Well the 97 was a bust... To much work to little time.... So I went and bought a 1998 sport with power windows. It's a Deep Amethyst with 2 tone black Gray interior. The 4.0.... And I think the np231?? The tranny indicator goes as such, 2H, 4H, N, 2L. Correct me if I'm wrong.
