will late 70s(waggy) trans bolt into 86 waggy

now ive got cj and a waggy (86amc) to build on. the tranny had been slipping for some time and it finally took a dump today. the $700, 2 yr. daily driver doesn't owe me much. needing immediate transportaion i went and bought a 2000 cherokee and i gotta tell ya that old waggy was 5 times more comfortable and rode 3 times better... but anyway. my buddy has a handfull of late 70's waggys in his personal junkyard on the farm... will these trannys fit into an 86. it has an auto w/ driver side drop t-case behind a 360. gotta admit, i know cj's like the back of my hand but not to much on FSJ's. worse case i yank the motor and ditch the rest, thats why i bought it in the first place but it rode so nice i couldn't scrap it.

The tranny will bolt to the engine but the transfer case will not bolt to the tranny. The late 70's used the dana 20 and quadratrac both of which are passenger side drop. The 80's driver's side drop cases have a different bolt pattern so you can't just bolt it on. The 70's tranny was also a TH400 and the 80's was a TF727 so the adapters are different too.
