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.
