Don't forget, now is the time to....

Change the Transmission rear seal and the TC seals, easy when it's out.
Nothing like getting done and finding a puddle on the ground...
Don't forget the fluid of choice for the 242 is ATF4 not the $$Mopar$$ stuff.
Swapped mine last fall, wonderful...!!!

Loos like a 242. I have a 231 on the ground and the rear case half from top to bottom is not as high as the one in the pic.

242,232 249? Drive shafts should be direct swap as long as the TC is from a pre 94.7. Even though its a 93 Gc doesn't mean someone didnt swap a newer TC into it at some point. Ask the seller for the serial number so you can get the build date of the TC.

5 quarts of ATF for mopar. I lost about 3 out of the trans and the tc takes 2. Should do your Ujoints while they are out also. Wouldn't hurt to change diff oils if they haven't been done in a while.

Use atf-4. Any brand will do since to have atf-4 on the label is has to meet Chryslers standards. Even house brand atf-4 is great quality.
