Re: T18 Swap Episode 3 - Pry it Out, Shoehorn it In
Thanks for the tip Aaron [img]images/graemlins/goodpost.gif[/img]
Well the flywheel is off and at the machine shop for resurface. There being nothing more to take off the Jeep, the next post will be the beginning of the reinstall phase.
Question: Should I wait until the Tcase is rebuilt and install the Transmission/Tcase together or is it ok to put the transmission in now and Tcase later?
Question 2: The T-176 bellhousing I have has 3/8 holes and the T18 was bolted on with 1/2" bolts to the FSJ housing. Should I drill out and tap for 1/2" bolts or use busings, or just put the 3/8 in and not worry about the extra room around the bolt shaft?
I am leaning towards drill and tap for 1/2".
