Ideally, Column Shift Cars need the Trimatic to have the Selector Lever on the Driver's Side.

Going off the link & the LP code one box, his trimatic is from a carby VK so it's a left hand selector. So he needs an earlier box or he needs to get cleaver & rig up a quick cable.
This link should help. http://gallery.oldho...

Wether it's a column or floor shift being a trimatic it'll be a right side selector, holden starting using left side in the UC Torana, early Commodores & WB commercials.

You can, buts it's not a little job & it's most likely best left for a shop!
If you look at the link I posted it'll show how you can hook up your column shift via a B & M quick shift cable to a auto with a left shift, it's fairly straight forward!

If you check that link I posted that uses an off the shelf B & M cable.

Hi there,

I have put a HX 253 into my UC and it went straight in. I need to setup a Trans Cooler but which one is the in and out for the Hydraulic lines. I still have the lines to the font of the motor but the guy chopped the ends off so I cant connect to the radiator.
