I need to know something very important. I believe it was in '84 that the AMC 150 (2.5L) was introduced into CJ's. I know that the manual trannies you could get back then were the T-4/T-5 but was the T-176 an option? Could you find a CJ with a AMC's 4 banger and a T-176?

Re: T-176?

The chilton's jeep manual and the haynes repair manual both say that the only trans available for an 84 150 4 cyl. was the warner T-4 4 speed. However, it also says that the warner T-5 5 speed was an option. T-176 was never used in that year. Ralph P

According to the information I've seen, even in the years Jeep used the T-176, they didn't use it with the 4 cylinder, they used the SR-4.

Re: T-176?

So what would it take to mate a T-176 or simliar tranny with Ford's butterfly pattern to my AMC 4 cylinder? I truly like this engine and do not want to swap it. Would I have to drill and tap my existing bellhousing? Is there any other way of going about this?

Re: T-176?

My 82 Scrambler had a GM 151 4 banger and a T176 stock. Made my 350 swap a breeze. I suppose drilling the AMC 151 bellhousing to the T176 pattern would work as long as the bearing retainer diameter was the same. The other concern would be input shaft length/bellhousing depth. But why swap in a T176? Wouldn't a T18 or a NP435 be a better choice?
