TJ Bellhousing has a funny bolt at the top...

Hey all,

On top of the bell housing the TJ has two bolts that are hex or something. I remember somebody telling me what socket will fit on it but i forget what it was. Any body know what it is? i need to do my clutch soon. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

If they are the same as a YJ (sounds like they are), you need a TORX socket for them. I had to buy a set of TORX sockets just for those two bolts when I pulled my trans. Hope this helps.

Re: TJ Bellhousing has a funny bolt at the top...

I just pulled the engine, trans and trans axle out of my wifes 97 TJ and the trans out of my 93 YJ this previous weekend. (Yes it has been a busy time in my drive) Her's is a automatic and mine is a manual AX5 neither of them had 2 torx socket style bolts on top. Both of the bolts where hex head(18mm socket) I am refering to the two top bolts that hold the tranny to the motor. There is a total of 6. If you are talking about 2 different bolts sorry. I only needed a torx socket for one part and that was the starter and did not need an allen socket for anything. I hope this helps.
