CJ-autotrans swap

Greetings I need advice, I am looking to find a auto trans to put in my CJ-7 (401 AMC, 9in rear d-44 front 35in boggers) used mostly for mud drags. I have been trying without much luck to find a TH-400/D20 out of a jeepster commando, anyone Know of any other good options without spending a ton of money on adapters? Current tranny/trans is a T-18/D20, I need to go to an auto for faster shifts in shallow pit drags. Any help is appreciated.

How about a TF727. Great tranny, full race kits are $50 and fairly easy to install. Just don't plan on clocking it flat. It gets much more complicated when you do. Ask me how I know. [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

I don't thinkyou need to limit your search to commandos though for a 400. Wagoneers had them also.

Re: CJ-autotrans swap

Only prob with a 727 is that the only factory trans cases I have found are quadratracks, I need center rear outout and gear drive. I have heard that some scouts came with a 727 and a D300 but I have not been able to confirm that. Also if I ever convert the Jeep back to street/trail use the linkage for the mechanical kickdown could be very chalenging to set up

Your off base a littel there guy, TF727 never came in front of Qtracks.

find ANY wagoneer with a V8 from 1980 or newer, and gets its Tf727, build it strong for about $200 total, and then bolt a Dana 300 to it.

Re: CJ-autotrans swap

If your set on a TH400/D20, you'd better head on over to the Jeepster board. My buddy Toad ("Commandtoad") has what your looking for. He has everything from the crank adapter & bellhousing spacer thru to the output yokes. You'd probably want to get a new flexplate for a 401 (his all came from 304/360 engines). Tell him Caver sent ya. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

1980 Scout IIs had the 727/D300 combo. An International D300 is pricey. For spline count, etc. somebody on www.binderbulletin.com will know, it's a great site.
