Tranny ID help - AMC Concord

I'm not having any luck finding a TF999 in Florida. But I did find a 1980 AMC Concord for $100 with a 258. Did these have the 999 behind them? Did they make a 4X4 Concord?

If it's 2wd, what would need to be done to make it work with a D300? Would the tail housing from a 727 fit?

Re: Tranny ID help - AMC Concord

im going by memory here so hopefully someone else chimes in. I belive the concord used the 904. But with it have the 258 in front of it it may be the 999. I think its time to ask leve how to change it over to 4wd and how to make sure it is a 999.

1. It's a TF904, they were used on '78 - '83 6 cylinder models, the 8 cylinder models used the TF727....
2. You should be able to adapt a Tail Housing from a TF999, not sure about the TF727.
3. At that expense, IMHO, you're better off:
a. Having a TF999 shipped in.
b. Rebuild the TF999, if you've got one now... it can be done in about 12 hours.
4. Remember <a target="_blank" href=http://tellico.off-road.com/ubbthreads/showthreaded.php?Cat=&amp;Board=offroadjeepshort&a mp;Number=869343&amp;Search=true&amp;Forum=offroad jeepshort&amp;Words=TF999&amp;Match=Entire%20Phras e&amp;Searchpage=0&amp;Limit=25&amp;Old=3weeks&amp ;Main=869343>THIS POST?</a> The shipping would be less than the cost of converison and you'd have a TF999.
4. Yep, the Concord could have had 4X4.
5. What about later model XJ's? They have the TF999

The 4x4 Concord was the Eagle.

Re: Tranny ID help - AMC Concord

Leve is pretty much right on with his appraisal. For informational purposes: the 904/999 and727 are the same length! Didn't beleive it or would have ever expected it to be so. They will interchange in the YJ and the brackets for the Xfer shifter are in the same place. The tranny linkage is the same and the cooler lines. The kicker is the spline count on the transfer. I have both and I THINK? they are both 23 splines. Someone may be able to verify this. If you have yours out-check it. The 727 from a waggy should be fairly easy to find. The front shaft would be on the same side so you could use the waggy transfer also. They also have the yoke bolted to the transfer. The rear driveshaft might be a problem though. OK everybody, chime in and let's get it going.
