T-18 clutch question

To install my Ford T-18, I understand I need a Ford clutch disk that has a 1 1/16" 10 spline instead of a 1 1/8 spline that a Jeep uses. How can I get that package with an AMC pressure plate, other than AA? Will a Ford pressure plate mount to an AMC flywheel?
Thanks

Re: T-18 clutch question

On my Ford T18 and AMC 304 I used the Ford clutch, pressure plate and disc.

Re: T-18 clutch question

So the flywheel holes must be a standard pattern. What about the throwout bearing? Standard Ford also? I'm trying to find out if I can use a clutch "package" and what the application would be.
Thanks for the info!

Re: T-18 clutch question

The clutch package I bought at the local NAPA had the wrong throwout bearing with it. I had looked before I left the store, so they pulled one off the shelve and swapped it for me. I think the clutch setup is for older Mustang, (10.4" or 10.5"), throwout bearing is for a Jeep w/4 speed.

Re: T-18 clutch question

You'll definitely need an AMC throwout bearing. The Ford one won't fit the clutch fork.

Edit - I just remembered that you can get an entire clutch kit for a '77-79 CJ with a four speed and it will have the right clutch disc. Those years used the 1-1/16" clutch disc instead of the 1-1/8" like most other years. I know because that's what I have in mine with a '79 CJ T18.

So you have the T18 Ford with the AA adapter ? Was it together or did you install the mainshaft yourself ? D20 or D300 and how long is the whole assembly going to be ? I`m slowly attempting this whole manouver myself . Mine is going in a CJ5 so I`m wondering how long my driveshaft is going to be ? If I`m going to end up welding 2 universals together for a driveshaft [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] I`ll wait for a Jeep T18w/D20 . What about your skidplate ? You just moving it back to the last set of bolts ? Thanks for any tips Bill.

Re: T-18 clutch question

Jeff- In my 75 CJ5 w/SOA, T18/D20 I had a standard 17.5" long rear driveline, and moved the skid back to the next set of holes. Front shaft was lengthed 3".

Re: T-18 clutch question

Thanks Patrick , if my 79 follows the same lines there should be no problem . Are you using the Ford with adaptor or Jeep T18 ?
