I just looked in Transmission's and there is a lot of threads on trans brakes in there that may give you some idea what to look for.

piston on solenoid is not the same length as the old one, will not go in far enough to hold the car, take it back or build it up like 30 thou with jb weld........don't laugh it works but i wouldn't do it on a new solenoid i would return it for the right size.......
