The tail shaft housings are different - if your driveshaft is out, slide it into the housing. If It's a 4R70W, the yoke will wobble around like nobodys business. If It's an AODE, them it will fit the same as your current tranny. Also see if you can tell the color of the seal. So far, all of the 4R70W seals I've seen have had yellow on them, and the AOD/AODE seals have red on them. I'll send a pic to show you the difference.
If you turn the output shaft and it clicks, it has a Mech diode in it. If it goes squeeeeeeaaakkk when you turn it, it is both a roller one-way clutch and it's guaranteed NOT to be a 98+ transmission. The wires in the pan also confirm this.
Assuming this is an AODE, you will be able to drive around on this trans for a while just fine while you rebuild your other one.
