hi, I just stripped a 1985 Eagle wagon Limited for parts. Have the trans/Tcase assembly out. Is there any way to tell if this is a Lockup or non Lockup trans just from exterior clues? Thanks,  gz

You must pull the torque converter and look at the input shaft of the transmission.  If it has a smooth end, it has lockup.  If it is splined to the end of the shaft, it is non-lockup. :)
