Hey guys, Ive fitted a B&M megashifter into the ltd and I am curious to know of which shift plate to buy to adapt the cable to the Borg Warner model 40 3spd auto, so far i have done the dodge and made a plate with a few holes in it to do the job for now but it is a bit stiff at P/R/N end but shifts smooth with the ratchet thru 1/2/D so i hope a genuine shift plate will sort this out.

I am tippin that maybe a C4/6/9 might be the right dimensions but will be different at the imput shaft so its not a perfect fit but maybe some other version like a T700/500, powerglide with an extra hole in it to suit the 3spd.
I have searched the parts list from B&M but cannot find any answers.

Anyone had any experience?

There isnt 1 for the BW 35 or 40.
About the only Aussie style box they make them for is the trimatic and that dosnt help us.
I cant remember what bracket i used ithink it was either C4 or T350 and played around on the bench grinder, works like a bought 1.
