Just a warning for anyone that's contemplating doing the mirror image bracket bit...look first to see what type of C4 you have...either the dip stick for the box is in the side of the pan or in the case...if its in the pan, then make allowances for that in the construction of the bracket....I made a master piece mirror image, then discovered that the dip stick is smack bang in the middle where the brackets needs to be...Needless to say, that took a lot of fiddling to make fit.....Worked out fine in the end, but I just wanted to warn anyone..Spark?..if you want to do the same.
See ya

Case entry on the one I have, I will make a flat bracket to fit onto the bolts on the under side of the pane and then weld a leg with a hole to support the linkage.

When I was last looking at the tranz, I noticed a part of the case has a nob with a 5/8 hole in it right next to where the dip stick goes, (I got no idea what itís for), maybe useful as a mounting point for the linkage?

Also I see that the left side of the pan has a flat right angle peace to stiffen the pan where the linkage bracket goes.
ANY info or comments are most welcome.

On this theme ,a handy hint for those faced with a similar choice who choose to use Holden V8 /Trimatic in their project. The Commodore Trimatic has the selector on the L/H side,whilst the Kingswood family has the selector on the R/H side...............Frank
