HELP! new jeep, problems already

Hey everyone,

I just got a new jeep to add to the family and already got problems. Well first off its a 81 CJ-5 with a 350 and a dana 300 as far as the transmission, I'll get to that in a second. Well today I was trying to bleed the cluch and somehow I broke the slave cylinder off (the bolts broke in two) so Im trying to find a new slave cylinder, my first question is when looking for a slave cylinder do you go by the engine, bellhousing, or transmission? The transmission Im not 100% sure what it is. I know its a manual 4 speed ford tranny made by borg warner my guess is (T-18) Do the T-18 trannys say "T18" anywhere on them? If so where would it be stamped at? What I dont understand is how it is all bolted together with no adapter plates. Has anyone ever seen or heard of this. ( chevy 350 to ford trany to dana 300 (no adapters)

Re: HELP! new jeep, problems already

Its probably a Chevy tranny , SM ??? . If it was a T18 it would say 13-01 on the side . Once you can tell what you have for a tranny then we can help with the slave cylinder issue . Perhaps it has a AA bellhousing that adapts the Chev to a T18 ??? Just a thought .

Re: HELP! new jeep, problems already

Is it smooth or ribbed on the sides? A ribbed case is a SR-4, a smooth case is a T176. It probably came stock with a GM 151 "Iron Duke" motor, which has the same bellhousing bolt pattern as the SBC, therefore no adapter needed. The SR-4 is not really up to the 350 power. I'm guessing you have a T176 because of the Ford marking. It will handle the power. When looking for parts, -if this is what I just described-, just ask for a slave cyl for a 81 with a 4 cylinder.

Re: HELP! new jeep, problems already

If it's the SR4 I'd have to say no, it's too weak for anything but the 4 cylinder. If it's the T176, It's not a bad trans for a daily driver, even up to a V-8. No super low gear for off road, but it shifts good and the gears aren't too widely spaced.
