Re: t18 1e ist gear

Are you wanting to know what the ratio is for first gear? It's 6.32:1. That help?

Re: t18 1e ist gear

thanks guys, iknow it came out of a ford, so i guess im on the right track.
if i started this the only parts i need is a presser disk form a ford 10.5 inches, adapter for transfer case,i have the right bell,an a bushing for input shaft,
my 75 cj5 has a t15 with a v8
what about the top end will it line up with the old shifter hole? what about the shifter do you have to bend it, it looks long do you shorten it or what?

This is the same setup I swapped into my 75 CJ except I used a D300 tcase. Is the bellhousing you have for a T150? The T15 bellhousing won`t work. If you have the T150 bellhousing you`ll need a complete clutch kit. Just get one for a 76-79 CJ with a 3 speed tranny. A lot of board members, including myself, prefer the LUK brand clutches if you can get them. Also, when I bought my AA adapter from Parts Mike he sent the special pilot bushing with it.

[/ QUOTE ] No, it won`t line up. You`ll have to do some fab work to make it work. You`ll also have to move the tranny crossmember rearward and drill new holes to fasten it to the frame.

It seems I had to bend it a little rearward to be able to get it to go in 1st and reverse without hitting the dash with your knuckles. The throws on those two gears are kinda long.
That`s a great tranny and the D300 adapter is only a few dollars more than the D20 if you decided to go that route. Plus it`s easy to clock and twin stick the D300. Hope this helps.
